8. Good stuff

THIS is the kind of work democrats/progressives need to do.

The Republicans have been chasing their tails since early in the Bush II presidency.

They were all about states rights in the 90s, and have trampled them since for the most part, for example.

They are kind of going moment to moment and adapting their argument while arguing against what they were screaming for 10 minutes earlier.

They get away with it because they are unified with what they do at any given time and because there is no pushback from the media.

But, it is a muddle of messaging that leaves the opening for progressive to grab the high ground if there is the capacity to develop a strong position and rally around it.
