    most of the people here bitching about simpson bowles are going to vote for obama.  i would venture to say practically all of them.  i know i am, but, now is the time to kick and shout about it.  we have until the election to build support for a bolder stand on the part of obama.  i don't think bitching on kos is going to put a dent in his vote total, but maybe if people keep pushing the issue obama will modify his positions in the upcoming negotiations.

    i think you probably agree that simpson bowles is not a great blueprint for dealing with our problems.

    you probably also have read, as have I, the articles on how the dreamer kids and the gay rights activists got traction with obama when he was initially disinclined to take up their issues.  they protested loudly and threatened to withhold votes and money.  then they got action.

    the positions obama is signalling he wants to take on america's vital social safety nets are wrong and there will never be a better time to raise this point, nor dkos a better forum for sharing them.

    imho
