  •  Yes, I'm giving Obama credit (0+ / 0-)

    for doing something when he could have done the exact opposite thing instead. That's only rational. Personally, I think it was wrong to raise the most regressive federal tax, but that's how it is. The reality is that, after all the scare tactics and fear-mongering, Obama hasn't yet cut SS one cent. He has only punished the working poor with a payroll tax increase without getting any credit for strengthening the system.
    Oh, and he gave out extra benefits to SS recipients as a one-time payment included in the stimulus bill. How DLC of him! He obviously hates retirees and aches to see them suffer in poverty! lol

    Why you think OFA was created is irrelevant to how it could be used and manipulated by a coordinated grassroots effort. But, once again, we'll never see that happen since too much of the left have neutralized themselves with cynicism.

    I'd say the Occupy tactics were far more effective than the large number of lefties who essentially sat back and waited for Obama to deliver change to them, or who waited to be "proven right" about the cynical opinion they had of Obama all along. That crowd have been about as useful as tits on a bull.
