Washington, DC – John Podesta and the Center for American Progress Action Fund announced the launch of the Hyde Park Project – a new progressive policy war room that will feature the first-ever public policy rapid response blog of its kind.
Primarily through daily postings on The Wonk Room blog site (www.thinkprogress.org/wonkroom), the Hyde Park Project will focus on driving the ideological debate in four key policy issue areas: health care, economic mobility, national security, and climate change.
The daily mission of the project is a substantive, focused, and relentless effort in each of these areas:
— Defining the Bush record on the four core policy areas
— Critiquing the conservative approach
— Promoting progressive policy solutions
— Defending those progressive ideas from false attacks
