  •  And the media as well (0+ / 0-)

    It's strikes me as very odd given the GOP's attacks on Obama for his supposed $700 billion in cuts to medicare.  Now the GOP demands similar amounts of cuts to medicare, and the media doesn't report this with any context?  WTF?

    •  Obama never forced the GOP... (0+ / 0-)

      to publicly list their demands – i.e. what specifically the GOP wants to cut, and in what amounts -- and sell their unpopular agenda to the public.

      That is the problem

      Instead, Obama decided to enter into one-on-one backroom negotiations with Boehner.

      Whatever cuts emerge will fly under the banner of bipartisanship... Until the next election cycle, when the GOP pins the blame on the Democrats.
