It remains a mystery to me why the candidates who are able to tell the truth because they are doing the right thing aren’t able to capitalize on it. Telling the public that they are constantly given the lies of the right wing in order to get their votes against their own interests seems like something we really need to press home, over and over.

When I first read your interview, my reaction was incredulity. The quotes you offered reflected the worst Tea Party disinformation. I and many others strongly believe these intemperate and mendacious attacks on progressives dissatisfied with some of the administration’s incredible concessions to the militant right-wing Republicans are extremely destructive.

In trying to dig his way out of the ‘needs drug-testing… professional left’ hole he dug for himself this morning, Robert Gibbs showed that he doesn’t know the difference between right-wing talking points about the teacher-jobs bill and the relentless advocacy of additional stimulus being pursued by the left. In calling his own comments “inartful” Gibbs disqualified himself from further service as the President’s press secretary: artful is, like, Job One, especially when it comes to arming your allies in Congress with reasons to ask base voters to show up for the mid-terms. The president needs to fire Robert Gibbs.

When you are looking for talking points, it’s easy really, since leadership tries to keep the wahoos supplied. See: House Republican Directive (oops, that’s officially Conference). This is ideal territory for the staffer assigned to work up something quickly that will look like research.
