The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur criticized the “Washington conventional wisdom” of CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on Monday. Zakaria said that liberals have a “recurring fantasy” that President Barack Obama could take his case to the American people rather than compromising with Republicans in Congress and added that “liberals need to grow up.”

“A strong president doesn’t need to give fantastic speeches, he just needs to say, ‘This is my position and it’s backed by the American people and I’m sticking to it,’” Uygur said.

“Why does President Obama keep talking about a balanced approach if he never gives us one? In order to get balance, you need to fight for you side.”
