"And we get?"
Still, the formula for Obama comes down to this: convincing enough additional minorities and core liberals to turn out and vote next year to make up for a loss of support from centrist and conservative whites.
Leave aside the notion that a "core liberal" who supports a President's claim to unilaterally target American citizens for assassination is no liberal.
If Obama wants our support, what do we get?
Obama could, by executive order, establish a new WPA to help with DISemployment. He could do that tomorrow.
Obama could direct Attorney General Holder to start building a case against bankster CEOs for accounting control fraud. He could do that tomorrow.
Obama, as party leader, could request that Harry Reid abolish the filibuster (the "nuclear option"). He could do that tomorrow.
If Obama wants to get "core liberals" [snort] to vote for him, there's a lot he could do right now. He doesn't need to set up any organization in Chicago or do any polling. He just has to stop pushing R policies. Of course, since Obama (best case) believes in R policies or (worst case) is an R trojan horse, that will never happen. Rhetoric may happen, is already happening, but that's irrelevant now. Only actions matter.
NOTE In the recent past, I recall reading, possibly in comments here, the idea that the Ds are in fact more evil than the Rs, because they get away with shit the Rs could never get away with. Readers?
