The DLC Fumbles Once More
The DLC has attempted to copy the Republican Contract with America for the Democrats. The problem is while the Contract with America (henceforth to be referred to as "RCA") excellently framed the values of Republicans then showed clear policies that they would enact from those values, the DLC fails to present us with...well...anything. After carefully reading through the DLC Blueprint I came up with absolutely nothing concrete that Democrats stand for. I concur with Hunter over at DailyKos. I do not agree with Atrios that "From and Reed propose the Republican Platform", rather I believe that the DLC has succeeded with this document of proposing absolutely nothing, when you think about it, this is actually a rather astonishing acheivement. The DLC drives its politics from the idea that winning politics is comprised of not offending anyone, but with not offending anyone comes a great price, not excititing anyone.
