  •  Sigh. More needless hysteria over nothing. (2+ / 0-)

    Why were we even worrying about this? Of course this was going nowhere. Why? Because as this showed yet again, the DWOL has no control whatsoever over his caucus. And now Obama can go, "See, look, I tried to compromise with these guys and play fair, but they act like spoiled children who refuse anything that isn't 100% what they want."

    I have no idea why so many of us here turned into a bunch of Chicken Littles so quickly.

    •  Plus, progressives do forget one important factoid (0+ / 0-)

      We do not have the House majority. I would like to see any social security changes take effect in 2015, giving the Dems the 2014 election to win back the House. As a matter of fact, give them a few other concessions to get the immediate stimulus, the unemployment comp, and the debt ceiling bullshit done away with as well. Make everything they want kick in on jan 1 2015. Then start the 2014 campaign with more energy than the 2012 re-election.
