    strategy: now Obama is the "hostage-taker."

    On the bright side, chanied cpi is less likely to happen.

      Even Ryan didn't put this on the table.

      Barack Obama did.

      Now the Republicans with truth and sound bites on their side get to claim this is Democratic policy.

      What will it take Tom?  What will it take?

        Like you care what happens to Democrats.  Crocodile tears, I think.

        You  make assertions, but I see no data.   Obama is not running again.  We will see the impact of this proposal, WHICH I OPPOSE, in November 2014.  

        As for your dramatics at the end of your comment, you're not a star on a stage, except perhaps in your own mind.

          Not biting the noses off babies.

          Oh I'm laughing all right.

          2010 not enough for you?

          Your analysis is as shallow as you are.

            How about some substance? 2010 was fought over "Obamacare" as part of a larger strategy for unseating Obama in 2012. It succeeded tactically but failed strategically.

            Why should we assume that 2014 is going to be a repeat of 2010?

            The GOP was campaigning then on rolling back the President's policy. Now they are arguing the opposite: that the President's initiative, clearly unpopular, isn't draconian enough. How is this predictive of GOP victory?

            Nothing human is alien to me.
