    I was assured that the Republicans would strew flowers in Obama's path, if only he would meet them halfway on entitlement cuts.  How could anyone predict that they would cash in his preemptive concession and then ask for more?  They have always behaved so honorably and reasonably in the past, I can't blame the administration for being totally shocked and caught unawares.

      that Republicans would use Obama's CCPI proposal to judo flip the issue of entitlements.  And that they would relentlessly hammer the Democrats over the head on the issue of cutting SS.

      And here's the leader of the Republican House saying the President isn't cutting SS enough.

      What gives?
