Excellent points made by "Slay" and "Hannah Bell" in response to Robert Reich's article "Fire on the Left"

This particular paragraph is total BS -

With the election of Barack Obama, many on the left found comfort in the belief that a single man could make transformative change without powerful tailwinds behind him. But that was a pipe dream. Rather than feel discouraged and angry by a president and representatives that seem to bend to the prevailing winds from the right, David and others like him must drum up a storm...

...the "powerful tailwinds" were there. It was called election night 2008.

The Bush Republicans were too unpopular for the owners to continue with the old playbook. Smooth-talking Obama came along to calm the rabble - which he has done except for a few unhappy extremists on the left (i.e. people who pay attention) and he has now played his part in making it safe for Republicans to hold power again.
