The entire strategy if the Democratic Party has been to increase deoendency on government for the essentials of life, food, housing, and health care. That is what Obamacare is about. That is what public schools and teacher unuons ate about. That is what public employee unions like the ones in Wisconsin are about. When people see no cost to themselvrs from the operation of government, and only benefits from handouts, they act rationally, though shortsightedly, by wanting more benefits. The whole point of Obama's wanting to raise taxes on higher earners is NOT to actuakly raise revenues, it is to encourage the false idea that people can get all they want from government without any of the cost trickling down to them.
Democrats need to change their party mascot from the donkey to the squirrel. They divert the media's and the electorate's short attention spans with fleeting, fuzzy objects -- like the main canine character in the animated Pixar movie "Up," who was easily distracted from his main thoughts and serious duties by every last little moving trifle.

Embassy attacks? Quick, find a squirrel! Warnings ignored? Squirrel! American troops killed by long-plotting jihadis exploiting security weaknesses? Squirrel! First Amendment sabotage by White House officials in the name of political correctness? Squirrel! Chronic joblessness, high gas prices, exploding dependency? Squirrel! Squirrel! Squirrel!
