Time For Democrats To Show They’re The “Values” Party
Greg Sargent suggests that President Obama is “finding his voice” and he’s doing so by focusing on values. At a West Coast fundraiser Thursday night he drew a distinction between what Republicans want to do and where he wants to take us:
“These budget debates that we’re having now crystallize the debate that we’re going to be having in this country over the next 18 months about who we are, what we care about, what our values are, what our commitments are to each other,” Obama said.
He added that America should be “a country that is generous and compassionate, that is looking after our children and making sure they’ve got a shot at the American Dream, that is making sure our seniors have dignity and security in their old age, that looks after families who’ve got a disabled child.”
This is the way to go. Fight the right on its own battlefield. They think they own the values issue. They don’t. And it’s time to prove that.Click here for reuse options!
