February 13, 2013

The Progressive Campaign Change Committee’s Adam Green, explained why he is still worried about Social Security, why progressive “sacred cows” are better than Republican sacred cows, where Obama pushed the agenda in the right direction and where he pushed it in the wrong direction, Obama’s powerful moment on gun violence, President Obama’s call for a higher minimum wage and Bold Progressives push against Mitch McConnell.

Crooks And Liars, founder John Amato, explained why President Obama helped the Democratic cause with this SOTU, how Chris Matthews  destroyed Rubio’s response and why Republicans are deluded about Obama’s talent.

On The Better Half: The gulp heard around the world, Marco Rubio reminds Sam of a infomercial pitch man, a Libertarian responds to Obama’s SOTU and your calls and IMs.
