Liberals warn: Don’t write off the Tea Party (even if they’re crazy)

BY Chris Moody

LAS VEGAS, NV — Liberals could face major losses if they continue to ignore the Tea Party movement, a panel of progressive writers said Thursday during a discussion at NetrootsNation, an annual gathering of bloggers, activists and policy makers.The panelists, which included well-known authors David Neiwert and John Amato of Crooksandliars.com, warned that regardless of whether people have negative attitudes toward the Tea Party, progressives could lose their footing unless they mobilize their own base and treat the right-wing movement as a force to be reckoned with.

Business Coalitions Zero In on Tax Increases

BY John D. McKinnon

Businesses and advocacy groups plan to dial up pressure on Congress to block tax increases, as lawmakers prepare to head home for the August recess.Business advocates hope the expiration of the Bush-era tax cuts at the end of the year will become a flashpoint at town hall meetings and other gatherings, just as health care and government spending were during last year’s August break.

Is ‘One Nation’ just liberal astroturfing?

BY Scott Payne

Conservatives had their fair share of “astroturfing” allegations lobbed at them  around last year’s town hall meetings on health care reform. But it would seem that in 2010, it’s liberals’ turn to take a kick at the can.According to the Washington Post, liberals leaders and groups are, “forming a coalition that they hope will match the [tea party] movement's political energy and influence.” Uniting under the banner of One Nation, liberals, “promise to ‘counter the tea party narrative’ and help the progressive movement find its voice again after 18 months of floundering.”
