  •  Strange, since he has so heavily invested in 2014 (0+ / 0-)

    And winning 2014 will be likely be primarily determined by the economic trajectory, not any particular issue, as has been the case for countless elections beforehand.  

    I repeatedly claimed that Obama would never propose cuts to social security. I was wrong. Then again, I also claimed, repeatedly, that Rick Perry would win the 2012 Election, and that The Supreme Court would overturn Health Care Reform.

    •  Well, he isn't on the ballot. (7+ / 0-)

      But I also think GOP turnout will be down in the districts we need to win. The question is going to be Dem turnout. Of course liberals & black voters will turn out, they always do. Theres just not enough of them in the right places to win. The key question will be the new Obama demographics. Will it be 2010 or robust? Time will tell.

      I do know that attacking Social Security is most definitely a turnout depressor since the polls show the public is overwhelmingly against that, across all demographics and ideologies excepting the most conservative.

      •  This is very insightful (1+ / 0-)

        What so many fault realize is that there just aren't enough D votes in the right places.
