      ...the people that elected him...pushed so to speak to (do the right thing) especially in this Congress and national atmosphere laced with financial challenges that few saw coming...but as POTUS his bias needs to be subdued else the dingbats, wolves, and extremists will prevail ( Nov10 elections) and stall all progress. IMHO, hell yes he wants to maintain SS safe and whole but so far only the rightwing extreme voices are being heard and the leftwing is not organized enough yet to overcome it.  Remember folks...he is the POTUS...not leader of Democratic Party, and Obama really believes that he leads the USA not one side or other...but at end of the day he is a leans forward and left.  just saying

        is, indeed, the de facto leader of the Democratic Party.  If he didn't possess sufficient conviction in the ideals of the Democratic Party and desire to preserve the planks that represent the Party's core values, he should have run as a third party candidate.  We have a two-party system at present.  Since when did the presidency morph into the position of Grand Mediator?

      •  laughable comment (0+ / 0-)

        as if the left hasn't been screaming this whole time? as if the polls haven't backed leftist policy?

        it is wholly disgusting to put the blame at the feet of the people when their leader refuses to do what needs to be done.

        •  So in your world view POTUS is the political... (0+ / 0-)

          ...leader more than the leader of the USA.  That has to be almost impossible for a person that really truly believes in the USA and all it stands for. imho
