Q&A: RICK JACOBS, Courage Campaign 14 orgs’ progressive advice for CA propositions


Aired 11/04/12

The final day to vote in this year’s elections is Tuesday November 6th. Last week I talked with Tom Hayden. Despite failures and frustrations, Tom believes the BARACK OBAMA accomplished more than he gets credit for and that his re-election is critical to many of the issues progressives care about.

ALSO: November 2005 with 1972 Democratic presidential candidate GEORGE McGOVERN, who passed away two weeks ago today. As a 24 year old, I worked on his national staff. In fact, I moved to Los Angeles for the first time to run the campaign in what was then the 52nd Assembly district, the most conservative Democratic district in the state at the time.

I recorded the interview with McGovern on the occasion of the release of ONE BRIGHT, SHINING MOMENT: The Forgotten Summer of George McGovern, a documentary on the 1972 campaign I highly recommend you watch on DVD.

  1. 10dIt can’t hurt to put them there (although you risk annoying your friends), but targeting your audience with a fan page is a good idea. Stick around for more tips. And as always, I appreciate your comments and nice words.

  2. I'm so happy to be visiting your blog again! After my hiatus I'm glad to be catching up with your blog. I love La Madeline! My mom took me there once when I was sick. I may have felt miserable, but the food was delicious! How did you like Skyfall?? Everyone's been talking about it.Great post!-Bwww.mighty-bside.blogspot.com

  3. Excellent post, Baron. (And thanks for the link.)I just wrote a very pessimistic post this evening about the last entry Steven Vincent made in his blog before he was kidnapped and murdered. It is proof of what I live every day: that PC multiculturalism is producing an Oprah-fied military that goes through the motions of fighting well enough without the conviction that our values are worth fighting for.My question is this: It took the Soviets 72 years to accomplish what they did. Do we have 72 years to reverse the damage?
