  •  Obama has kept his support (1+ / 0-)

    If the Democrats cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, or some combination of the above, the civil war we should be worrying about is the one that will break out in the Democratic party. If they fail to come through on immigration reform or bills for the unions, same thing.
    I honestly don't think this is the case - from a purist liberal point of view, Obama's first term wasn't that exciting (both stimulus and healthcare were compromises), and some stuff out of his control was pretty bad (Citizens United ruling).

    Yet, Obama has won and maintains a huge advantage - by tacking center wisely, he prevents any moderate GOP opponent from taking his ground.  Either the Republican fights vigorously for the center (in which case, their ass is chewed by the teabaggers) or they tack center at the end and, like Mittens, look completely insincere.
