30. I don't agree with people who say we should throw away..

liberal, Democratic principles just because "they can't win." That's defeatist, and we might as well be conceding the Repukes the momentum if we don't stand up to them. Repukes have been able to set the narrative. President Obama, to me, has not been a complete failure. I credit him for at least expanding health care, social policy improvements, restoring some integrity overseas, and preventing a deeper recession. But, he surrounded himself with too many free-trade and Wall Street people. Emanuel and now Daley are unfriendly toward progressives. Bush screwed up the country so much that we needed a different attitude toward getting more done. It would of course be ideal to be bi-partisan. But you can't be when the Repukes are absolutely crazy. They are big bullies.

Also, I thought the President's approval was up? This article seems to be focusing a lot on one poll.
