What exactly about my approach would you call wishy washy? I think targeting the middle is a better approach for Democrats then ignoring it and hoping you get more of your base fired up then the other guy. Playing gotcha politics is great for getting the base fired up, but Democrats are not nearly as good at it as Republicans and Republicans are much better at falling in line then Democrats.
On the other hand I think Democrats have a much better chance of convincing moderate independents to side with them (especially given the GOP's current level of extremism), but you do that by puting fourth valid reasons why your solutions are better for the whole country, not by making fun of the GOP.
