  •  Stop this endless childish whining and attacking (16+ / 0-)

    the president. I get the impression some of the progressive extremists on DailyKos are closet Hillaryites from 2008 (the liberal analog to John  Mccain's grumpy old man attitude).

      What are you going to say to Seniors who have nothing to eat? You better prepared to take them in and feed them, because that is what is going to happen if the President doesn't do the right thing here. Dont' call me or others like me extremists. Maybe the real extremists are the ones calling for a deal "for the good of the nation". I'm just sayin'. Dont' be so quick to call others childish. Its, to say the lest, TofG, unbecoming.

      Look, I'm also nervous about the chained CPI talk. And so are  Dems of many different stripes. And yes many have been all over the President. But let's put this meme to rest. At times it seems any old excuse will suffice to drag it out again. ( Sorry TofG - just hate to see this because it's divisive and I  was hoping it had gone away.)  I agree that there has been a lot of over the top attacking of the President, but it sure has been a nervous-making process to watch what appear to be giveaways.

      •  We need to talk about this (3+ / 0-)

        FDR said it himself, when he told people "make me do it". The President has to hear this. He has to know that we know what it means. Sure its divisive, but its never easy saying things people don't want to hear. This is too important. There is too much at stake. We have a duty to speak up. This is not abotu dvisiveness. This is about making the President do the right thing. If it was good enough for FDR, its good enough for the President..

        •  I didn't mean that we shouldn't talk about it. (0+ / 0-)

          I just don't agree with diarist view linking those who are critical of the President to Hilary supporters. That's the meme I'm tired of and find divisive. That's why the word puma was in the title. Yes, I agree that we need to talk, blog, sign petitions, make phone calls, etc. Did a bunch that yesterday and today. I phoned the White House line, emailed WH, phoned Pelosi's office, etc. I think the chained CPI idea is terrible. Sorry if I wasn't clear.

    •  When Hillary is elected president in 2016 (0+ / 0-)

      you can play with your Hillary nutcracker, and reminisce about the good old days when it was still a boy's club at the top.

    •  Yes. Because it's utterly impossible that (0+ / 0-)

      anyone is simply deeply dissatisfied with the best of all possible Presidents in this, the best of all possible worlds.

      The must be "closet Hillaryites" or something.
