I’ll say it one more time

As we see the widespread handwringing among supporters of Obama as to why he seems to be such a lousy negotiator that he keeps overlooking obvious winning strategies for his policies and thus keeps getting rolled by the Republicans, I will repeat what I have said many, many times before, this time in boldface:

When it comes to any policy that the Democrats say they espouse but which hurts the interests of the oligarchy, the Democrats do not want a strategy that will win, they seek one that will lose.

By that measure, they are very, very good negotiators.

    Any chance you could do a post listing some of these losing strategies and issues? It’s harder to remember things that didn’t pass, and besides public-option health care, I’m having trouble coming up with any. Thanks.
