    I can see you're committed to the cause.

    Just in case you forgot today: REPUBLICANS VOTED TO END MEDICARE. AND THEY'LL DO IT AGAIN.

    •  I am as committed to the cause... (0+ / 0-)

      ...as Obama is.  Seriously, are you feeling the audacity yet?

      •  if you are hanging on a politician (0+ / 0-)

        To validate your commitment, you were never committed in the first place.

        We don't have time for sunshine patriots and fair-weather friends.  Face front towards the enemy, or get out of the line.  You're no use shooting back into the troops.

          ...when they insist on standing in the way.  And that's where Obama is now.  Claiming to lead us, and then walking backwards.  Spare me your "with us or against us" crap.  Cheerleading is not a real job.  

          Obama is placing us in a untenable position.  We weaken the Democratic brand if we fight our own president too hard, and we weaken the Democratic brand by swallowing every milquetoast, Republican-sponsored compromise he signs.  His performance might look a little better compared to the Republicans.  But that doesn't make it good, and certainly does not approach what he promised on the campaign trail.

          One more question.  As you say REPUBLICANS VOTED TO END MEDICARE. AND THEY'LL DO IT AGAIN. Now are you so sure Obama will act to stop them?  Because he hasn't had a single line in the sand since 2008.

           Are you fighting the same fight as Obama? Or are your efforts just giving him the political leverage to get something he really wants? What will you do when he offers to cut Medicare and then urges you to be "reasonable" about it?
