    This is what Romney and Ryan are too chicken to talk about but my president is no coward.

      I am pumped up by the speeches. But let's be clear. Pres Obama invoked the debt commission. He just made a commitment to medicare and avoiding voucher care. He did not commit to social security. Pres Obama must be re-elected. But so must Elizabeth Warren and other progressives to push him hard towards progressivsim.

      Pres Obama is going to get money from Rahm's superpac.

          Pres Obama may feel he has no choice. There is not enough pressure from liberals, and without money, there is no presidency possible. We have to support Pres Obama's reelection - the alternative is unthinkable. However, supporting progressives like Elizabeth Warren is equally crucial.
