    They're forcing him to go on the record with proposals  like cutting SS and Medicare and raising gas prices and god knows what else because he thinks that's the only way he can get a deal with them, and then they're walking away, leaving him out on a limb with unpopular positions to defend next year.

    Ideology is an excuse to ignore common sense.

    •  And you're belittling primary supporters? (0+ / 0-)

      I understand why a primary is impossible in this dimension. But you're guffawing at people when this is your level of support?

      I'm going to be in the same voting booth as a ballot with a 'D' after Obama's name, and I suspect that will be my only motivation.

      But for most voters, 'less bad' will mean 'different from last time.'
