A decades-long multimedia campaign to turn "liberal" into a dirty word has caused the modern-day media to embrace the "both sides bad" narrative like a fat kid embraces cake.

LordZorch: You do realize that fascism is actually a form of socialism, right?

You do realize that words have definitions and you can't just make up your own when it suits you, right?

FTFA: It judges presidents based on what they accomplish. "Great presidents overcome great hurdles," Fournier writes, adding: "To say the situation is intractable seems akin to waving a white flag over a polarized capital."

Then Fournier would judge Obama as a great President.  He's turned the economy around, ended two wars, reduced government spending and implement a healthcare system while overcoming the hurdle of an obstructionist GOP that at every turn tried to sabotage the President's efforts.

LordZorch: It's been a dirty word for decades - right about the time people figured out what a bunch of marxist loons that "liberals" really were.  Then they moved on to calling themselves "progressives", but nobody was fooled.

When you turn off your computer at the end of the day, does a small smile form on your face when you realize another day was spent portraying yourself as a retard in hopes of gaining attention on a website? I mean, it's 10 years in and you're still doing it...so you're either getting paid extremely well or you have a mental disease.

The best thing the Democrats can do is work on a solid ground game for 2014, at both the local, state, and national level. Obama and company should take solid control of the Democratic party and get out the vote and replace people at the state level who have been failing with new blood.

This whole middle class jobs thing doesn't sell. You need stronger rhetoric. It's time to beat down the plutocracy in this country, to attack them, to go for the throat. Talk about how they are dismantling NC, talk about how they've acted in Texas. Talk about the pollution and waste. Talk more about global warming. Talk about how NY is working on building a seawall. Talk about overfishing and the death of coral reefs and personal energy consumption. Talk about local vs global. Have a weekly address where you follow the money trail around Washington, and beat up your own party members if you have to.

Obama won't do any of these things because he's too focused on actually doing what little he can as an executive in government. And let's face it he's not that interested in changing the status quo. Neither is the media. The country is sick because the people who lead it, on all sides, suck.
