16. I'll tell you how: by not holding GOP accountable

When Obama took office, did he investigate and prosecute bush admin for war crimes? Did he investigate and prosecute wall street gop donors after the great recession?
You bet GOP would bury dems if we had pulled iraq war. They never let go even when we did nothing wrong. They’ve gradually built their power and, yes, we are partially responsible for this. Dems are terrible at marketing. We are struggling to sell good ideas when gop can sell bad ideas with ease.
GOP has built a massive rw media empire that took decades. And what dems did? Relying on ‘smart voters’? Why is it so hard to understand that half the country is dumb and racist? Always been that way. You can’t market a product the same way to dummies and informed. You need to have dem media for dummies.
