  •  Biden doesn't even do pressers (5+ / 0-)

    so he will probably never be put on the spot and asked why he lied.  He is not stupid.  He knows what Obama offered up in the grand bargain the first time, knows what was in the catfood commission chairmen's plan, and I really don't believe that he did not know what was planned for the phony fiscal cliff.  So it's almost certain that he was lying major league too.  At that point they were really worried about polling numbers.  They knew they would have lost the election if they admitted they were going to cut Social Security.  So that means that all this BS being spouted by Obama about how the American people want a bipartisan deal, blah blah, is intentional deceit.  They are well aware that 80% of the American people don't want them to touch Social Security.  

    Talk about saying and doing anything to get elected.  But this is so much worse than other political lies.  This one does so much damage to the party too.  How much do either of them care about the party now?  Neither will ever need it again to get elected.  They got theirs.  Hell with everyone else.  Dems still in the party and future candidates will have to deal with their wreckage.

    And all of it done to preserve tax cuts for the wealthiest few and to preserve their endless wars and to take care of their individual and corporate sponsors.

      Along with the neediest among us in this country.
      And all of it done to preserve tax cuts for the wealthiest few and to preserve their endless wars and to take care of their individual and corporate sponsors.
      The growing wealth of the wealthiest in this country and the people out of work, losing their homes, those living in the woods, all those horrors that Wall St caused with their casino gambling, who have not been prosecuted, a war the MIC does not want to end and DC goes along with, on and on, so many tragedies hitting us all. My business has still not recovered from September 2008. I read the other posts here of people unable to find work.

      The foreclosure crisis going on now 4 years, the value of my house now 1/4 of what I paid. 1/4! and my 2 block long street has 4 to 5 houses in foreclosure, vacant for several years that the banks are keeping on their balance sheets, not even trying to sell.

      Real estate here in Florida will not start to recover until this huge backlog of foreclosures are dealt with.

      That I would work so passionately to get Obama elected in 2008, and sit today being so utterly overwhelmed by his actions now and over the past 4 years, is something that enrages me. I am one very angry citizen, and hold little hope for what comes out of DC these days.

      The country will be headed towards socialism within the coming years, or perhaps a bit longer, rebellion. Why the wealthiest, whether Dems or Reps, don't understand that is beyond me, joanne!
