“The Democratic Party Establishment, now spinning desperately to cover their own strategic incompetence is blaming the white working class as “deplorable” racists. Progressives and leftists who echo this line are making the worst mistake possible.” – Listening to Trump

“key principles of the Obama checklist are: sustainability (avoid commitments that cost too much to stick with); restraint (ask not what America can do but what it should do); precision (wield a scalpel rather than a hammer); patience (give policies the time and effort to work); fallibility (be realistic about the chances of failure and modest about what you can achieve); scepticism (interrogate the issues and beware those peddling easy answers to difficult questions); exceptionalism (the recognition that because of its enormous power and attachment to universal values America has a unique responsibility to provide leadership in the world that cannot be ducked).” – Playing it long
