69. Welcome...

...to the posting world!

I agree Democrats need a positive message. Saint Ronnie, for all his faults, knew the importance of donning an optimistic message about the future of the country. It should be a two pronged approach; be way more vocal on Republican obfuscation and at the same time project a vision of the country with say a strong social safety net, rebuilt infrastructure, maybe other possibilities like free first year college tuition, a new high speed rail...

Yes I'm sick of Republicans beating one dead horse after another but I'm also sick of Democrats lying down and allowing themselves to play the dead horses. Yes every "scandal" that Republican's uncover is nothing but invented tabloid garbage, but shame on the Dems for not rising above the role of perpetually on the defensive, instead of hitting hard themselves. They take everything "off the table" before anything has started.
