11/7 Casual Friday: Cliff Schecter & Josh Orton

November 7, 2014

Political strategist Cliff Schecter explains how the Daily Show nailed it on the Democrats many failures during the midterm elections,  the structural and strategic reasons Democrats lost big, why the Democrats ran on absolutely nothing, why you need a story and narrative, how Democrats can win and why they don’t do it, the only way to overcome the Republican midterm advantage, why Mark Warner stumbled in Virginia, how the Obama Administration undermined Congressional Democrats and will President Obama fight the Republican Majority?

Pastor James David Manning says sodomites are putting semen in your Starbucks Coffee.

Majority Report Executive Producer Emeritus Josh Ornton explains how Scott Walker won reelection, making voting easier in midterm elections, will the corruption accusations against Scott Walker go anywhere? Why Lawrence Lessig’s MayDay PAC failed, what the technology sector does not understand about politics and the Supreme Court will hear new objection to healthcare reform.

On The Fun Half: the why of the Florida disaster, Scott Walker ran away from his far right record in his last race, Josh gives us a movie suggestion and your calla and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
