Moore to Dims: Stop playing nice

Some excerpts from this article on his new movie.

"The main problem, in Moore’s view, is the Democratic strategy of trying 'to not rock the boat — in other words, to lose,' as he says in the film. He skewers Democrats for playing nice, featuring a montage of lawmakers saying the word 'compromise.' 'If you leave this up to the Democratic Party apparatus, we will fail, he said during a lively Q&A after the film. You have to admire Republicans and the right wing on some level because they have the courage of their convictions, and they will not relent. They will stand up and fight for what they believe, even after they’ve been proven wrong by the facts. They just will not give up. And our side, we’re like, Oh, OK,’ he continued, adopting a meek voice. 'We don’t have to have total health care for everybody, it’s OK.'"
