36. Public Relations
Can we all just realize that George W. Bush had the greatest attack on U.S. soil and still managed to leave office as if he wasn't responsible at all. How did he do that? Messaging. Control of the media. Control of the message. I would rather that President Obama and Democrats of all stripes got ahold of the message, than that they imitate Republicans and give away everything precious of our republic, just as the Republicans do, but just more slowly.

No, standing for something is not a bargaining chip, to be given away. If Democrats would only realize that if and when they stand on principle they are stronger than all these little giveaways, we would be in much better shape, as a country and as a party.

No, I am not interested in giving away my civil liberties for any purpose or fashion or any future pie in the sky either.
