    I wish the media would pick up on stuff like this more often. What is now talked as "radical socialist policies" by conservatives was recently considered to be "clearly consistent with conservative values", according to one of the leading conservative "think tanks". Pathetic.

    Not to short-circuit the thread at all, but it all points to the same thing: facts, analysis, and planning versus spin, emotion and hyperbole. There's a significant group that will only play with the latter set of tools as long as our current POTUS is in office, and we're stuck with that reality. I hope we're stuck with that reality for another 7 years, but it's at least 3.

    I think everyone has picked up on the modern congressional conservative mindset of "if Obama likes it, it must be bad... even if it was our idea."

    To that end, maybe he should just start doing the old reverse psychology ploy?

    That doesn't work either because as soon as they find out he's OK with something they proposed they'll be against it.
