Why Dems must go big- the disaster in the states

Been down seeing family in Memphis this weekend, so not much time to talk here. But I want to forward a good column in Daily Kos talking about the GOP takeover in the states.

It also shows that the GOP's state version of the RNC has spent more than twice the money that the Dems' state appartus has in the 2010s. It is a damming indictment of the failure of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and the DC Dems to care about the party outside of the I-95 corridor.Look no further than the wreck in Wisconsin to see how this neglect of the state's has hurt the party's ability to get power (via gerrymandering), and in turning the state into an undererforming cesspool of corruption.

And that's why going small and cautious will not cut it anymore for the Dems. The vandals in the GOP have wrecked things far too much, and being kind and incremental does not work in the land west of I-95 and east of the Rockies.


  1. Strategic, effective thinking. You're the Dem Party's worst enemy. Next thing you know you'll be calling for compelling communications and organizing.

    1. Or believing that telling the truth is preferable to watering down a message so you don't tick off some soccer mom? Or that rich consultants and other insiders dont have all the answers for what ails everyday people?

      Heaven forbid!
