    Obama is the worst human being in the world and dimensional chess and we can rant and rave and argue and hurt each other's feeling all we want.  We can be snarky, sarcastic and be huge dicks to one another calling each other Obots or emoprogs or whatever the terms are today.  me on the other hand, I'll spend my time putting the pressure on politicians and getting involved with organizations and campaigns trying to stop this from happening.  You can get involved with the Strengthen Social Security Coalition:

    They probably could use our help right now.  I'd rather do that than pine for the days of Roosevelt.  Your call Daily Kos community.

      rats ass about the Obama sux or rocks, he's just a pol and a twisty talented one at that. Good luck putting pressure on this administration and any Democrat's who have power. They could careless about any democratic values or even the rule of law. They all work for  neoliberal/neocon oligarchical collectivism the greedy, nasty,inevitable global NWO. Pining for FDR isn't what people are doing they are pinning for a just and decent government and for the common good along with democratic principles and the rule of law that the Democrat's need to start implementing and fighting for.

        And I agree but I don't want to pine, I want to make it happen.  And yes, I will keep up the pressure.  I am not going to take your defeatist "everyone one them is a neocon who hates your fucking guts monster so just give up!!!!" narrative.  I'll keep fighting.  Your choice, keep it up with this or join me and other organizations trying to fight to stop these cuts.

            preaching to the choir.  A lot of people here get it, I'd say a good 95% of them do.  Now we have to leave here and go outside Kos and get this across to more people.  We have to do it in a calm, direct but polite way.  Persuasion is key.

              a lot of people here do NOT get it.

              And politically-engaged lefties are a great group to convince, as they are more likely than others to spread the word.

                damn near every diary on the rec list against the Chained CPI, right?  How many diaries about income inequality and diaries constantly calling Obama and the Democrats are part of the 1% make the rec list?  Quite a few.  They get it, they honestly do.  Now they need direction and maybe a change of attitude.

                  dairy on the rec list is against austerity and the bogus deficit hysteria and cutting SS via the chained catfood commission perhaps it is not the people who must change their attitude but the assholes in DC? No we should all be polite and not insult Obama and his administration.

                  We should all sign endless petitions that do nothing we should all learn to love the bomb and hate the RW cause why? Fine I get it the RW sucks. So why in the hell  does a Democratic administration appoint Simpson and proceed to deal away every democratic principle and established progress to a bunch of fucking clowns who lost?

                   Get a grip and stop being apologists and cowardly and take these fuckers on. They need to be stopped and getting people riled up and acknowledging that the Democrat's in power and running the p;arty are betraying 'we the people' and our country is not a bad thing . No one should be afraid to call this what is is. It's a grand betrayal and all the kings men cannot make this anything but what it is. Sorry tough shit if you don't like the attitude. I liked the real poopdog better then your wimpy version.      

                  •  Whoa, whoa, whoa, first off, I am not an apologist (0+ / 0-)

                    whatsoever.  I never said you shouldn't criticize Obama or hold him accountable.  Let me clear up something about the attitude remark.  What I meant was switching it more to a pro-active attitude and I have been active in against these cuts.  I just meant that we need to get our anger and venting out then get into "take action" mode.  Some times the comments mislead that because you'll see a lot of "we don't have a democracy any more" or "the democratic party is dead" type of comments so it makes me wonder some times how much fight we have in us.  So I apologize if you took what I said the wrong thing.  I've been the one promoting the Protecting & Preserving Social Security Act so I'm on your side on this issue.  What I am saying is be careful to not let your emotions completely cloud your judgement.  That's all I was saying.    

                    Also, I'm not wimpy, I haven't changed anything.  I haven't been using any of the "11th dimensional chess" rhetoric or anything like that.  I am just focused on stopping the Chained CPI.  Yes the people in DC need to change their attitude too but what I'm saying is less time on angry comments, more time on calls for action.
