DOUG'S STACKS
Liberals Puzzled by Loss of Narrative

Liberals Puzzled by Loss of Narrative
They saw the same 2010 election we did, but they still can't figure out the message.

From Daily Beast:
Obama, like FDR, had a reasonably successful first two years: a stimulus package that, while too small for the circumstances, was still large by historical standards,, and a health-care bill that while subpar in myriad ways, still far exceeded the efforts of other recent Democratic presidents.

And then, unlike FDR, he ran into a grassroots movement of the right. Historians will long debate why the financial collapse of 2008 produced a right-wing populist movement and not a left-wing one. Perhaps it's because Obama didn't take on Wall Street; perhaps it's because with labor unions so weak there's just not the organizational muscle to create such a movement; perhaps it's because trust in government is so low that pro-government populism is almost impossible.
