    Needless.needless caving.

    This is caving as an ideology.

    Or,........Kabuki

    Again.

    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

      he is doing what he has said he wanted to do.  

      He said in the debates he agreed with Romney on what had to be done to social security.  He agreed to chained CPI in 2011.  Why is anyone surprised?  

      All the people who think "he doesn't have to run again so now he can do what he wants" are right.  But they thought he wanted help the 99%.   About that they were wrong.

      Good thing anyone who talks about third parties or other ideas is banned from this site.  More and better Democrats!  

      Yeah, that is working out great.  Well, at least he hasn't broken every promise.  At least he closed Gitmo.

      When you vote for corporate representatives, regardless of party, they do what the corporations want.

      It's not like you have any real options, but you shouldn't be surprised by the outcome.  Have you paid for your representation?  If not, why would you expect any?

      As cynical as I am it is still amazing to me to see that on the dem side the people negotiation are "the president and tim geithner".

      Geithner worked for Kissinger Associates in Washington for three years

      In October 2003, at age 42  he was named president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York

      he played a supporting role to Henry Paulson, Treasury Secretary and former CEO of Goldman Sachs,

      During the 2008 Presidential election, Geithner was one of three people tipped to be nominated for Treasury Secretary regardless of whether John McCain or Barack Obama won

      That is the person "negotiating" for your social safety net.   And he is supposed to be on the "good" team.  Wake up!

    •  He might have well lost (0+ / 0-)

      He's acting like someone who got his ass kicked hard.
