31. It's never given a chance in the "real world"
Edited on Tue Apr-05-11 11:27 AM by Armstead
Democratic leaders (not all Democrats, but the "centrist" ones) always avoid really engaging on the basis of how destructive the GOP Conservative agenda is, and how liberalism is a necessary counterweight to that.

The article was not suggesting the Obama do anything rash or radical. Simply suggesting that Obama does not spell out the real stakes in the battle with the GOP and their philosophy -- and he should be more direct about it.

The article is suggesting that Obama make it clear what the GOP is doing in strong direct terms, instead of giving legitimacy to the GOP and their goals.
