    And I'm failing to see how that's a bad thing.

    Let them attack Obama all they want. He's not running for anything.

    But they are now quite vocally screeching to protect SS from cuts.

    As Democrats, we should all agree and challenge them to do just that.

    I'm failing to see how getting your opposition to loudly and vocally support your position is a bad thing.

      Social Security, they want to "preserve and protect" it by handing it over to Wallstreet to "manage".

      Where Obama went wrong is proposing a chained cpi that actually is a cut.

      Turning it over to Wallstreet would not be a cut according to the Republican propaganda.

      I don't know why Obama didn't agree to turn it over to Wallstreet.  Maybe he will do that once he understands that is what the Republicans really, really want real bad and he can't resist giving it to them.
