The people speak

Just because you can assemble an angry gang of loudmouths doesn't mean you represent the majority opinion in America on every issue

Thanks to Norma for calling my attention to a nice piece of work by numbers cruncher Nate Silver. About the despised "Obama agenda." Drilling down on issue after issue you find the American voter is far more nuanced than the lockstepping baggers. On many important issues, the majority support the Democratic administration's point of view.

Taxing the rich; the outrageous campaign finance ruling; fair pay legislation; financial regulation; gays in the military; cap-and-trade; more. The numbers speak. Check it out. Health care still not so good.

Let's start polling Paul Ryan's demolition of Social Security and Medicare. And let's have a vote on it, Republicans. Voters, ask your favorite Republican where he or she stands.
