In this video Robert Borosage, co-director of the Campaign for America’s Future, offers his analysis of why Democrats lost the House during the 2010 elections and how progressives can regain their momentum. He explains why “I don’t think there is any evidence at all that the public is turning conservative,” and that the real issue was that Democrats failed to present compelling answers for the economic pain working-class people were feeling.

He also critiques President Obama’s Wednesday news conference response to the GOP victories, and offers ideas on how progressives can make progress for the nation on jobs and economic recovery in an environment where stalemate is expected.
