    with all my heart that the Democrats who are pushing this have taken leave of their senses.

    You simply cannot undo this damage once it is done, it's bad policy AND bad politics, and the ads write themselves.

    Low-information voters are going to eat up the American Crossroads ads once they show up. The GOP as the defenders of Social Security from austerity Democratic Partyites?

    That's priceless to Karl Rove. It could add 10 to 20 years of relevance to a party that demographics would otherwise render a rump party.

    I am from the Elizabeth Warren and Darcy Burner wing of the Democratic Party

      they know something that we don't know

      they are connected to something that we don't know

      better to assume rational action from where they stand

      from our position it is stupid, crazy

      but some how they are comfortable with what they are doing

      •  That's not a safe assumption (1+ / 0-)

        We know for certain that Democratic representatives can be just as stupid, greedy, corrupt, and complicit as Republican ones can. And to me it looks like they're in a race to see who can rob the country blindest first.

        If it's
        Not your body,
        Then it's
        Not your choice
        And it's
        None of your damn business!
