  •  Teaching opportunity? (2+ / 0-)

    So Obama is looking to fuck granny over in order to use the moment as a teaching opportunity?  

    I'm curious as to how exactly Obama is looking to diminish the power of the GOP aid in their dissolution?  Wouldn't that have been more effectively done by laying down solid progressive policies which offer a clear distinction between the Dem ideals and making the GOP own their crap policies?  Like maybe instead of cutting SS and further means testing Medicare how about taking the Sen Begich plan on SS and pushing to negotiate prescription drugs and expanding Medicare?  That way Obama and the Dems could campaign together on how the GOP wants to replace Medicare with a fucking 20% off Coupon and privatize SS while the Dems are looking to make Medicare and SS stronger.  The approach he took actually gives the GOP cover and makes it harder for the Dems to campaign in 2014 UNLESS they run away from Obama.  

    You NEVER want to be in a position where the standard bearer of your party or their policies have become so toxic that you have to run away from them.  Basically Obama will be persona non grata in 2014 and that's in DEMOCRATIC LEANING DISTRICTS.  He can't help campaign or fund raise for Dems in 2014 because of this.    He's motivated the people alright, but as in 2010 we may find that the motivation is to punish all those who stand with Obama or have a D after their name.

    This budget was a colossal blunder on so many levels.

      However, my money is on the guy who's sitting in the Oval office. He's done pretty good so far, politically speaking.

        2010 notwithstanding right?

        Let's just forget that altogether and hope 2014 won't be a repeat of the same mistakes.

        Obama has done pretty good so far against

        -a guy who forced his gorgeous wife to screw other people in sex clubs

        -Alan Keyes (nuf said)

        -Grumpy John McLame and Sarah Palin.

        -Willard Mitt RMoney and Paul Ayn Ryan.

        No offense but outside of the Dem primary with Hillary Clinton, Obama has been opposed by a bunch of losers, retreads and morons.  It would have been really pathetic had he NOT beaten all of them.
