    The issue driving the polls since the Convention is Medicare/Vouchercare, Medicaid (paying for grandma in the rest home, as Bill Clinton explained), and protecting Social Security. The debate didn't change any of that.

    I wish Obama and his spokespeople would shut up about cutting the deficit and all that Repub talking point shit. He may remind voters that you can't make much of a dent in the budget by cutting Big Bird -- he'll have to cut Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. Obama seems to yearn to do that because he mistakenly thinks it's needed, but electorally, it is a sure loser.

    If House and Senate candidates keep standing up to protect Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security -- without getting misty-eyed about Bowles Simpson and Grand Bargains to slash entitlements -- they will do fine.

      She actually had a zinger for that question- "It's not a program, it's a promise". I was really looking for Obama to say something like that.

      Male, 22, -4.75/-6.92, born and raised TN-05, now WI-02, remorseless supporter of Walker's recall. Pocan for Congress and Baldwin for Senate!
