    reported I should say, that the cat food commission will be the foundation of the presidents speech?

    •  Obama created the Cat Food (6+ / 0-)

      Commission and put Alan Simpson, a Social Security hating Rethuglican in as its co-chair.

      Not exactly shocking that Obama embraces austerity.

      Damn that evil Cat Food Commission and Alan Simpson!

      Now get out there and help Obama win re-election!

      /snark

      Obama "fights hard". Who did he fight against to get JP Morgan in the White House? Who did he fight against for Alan Simpson(R) co-chairing his "Deficit Commission"?

    •  that was rich (4+ / 0-)

      much discussion of how the failed catfood comm was now emerging as the "center" in the budget debate.
      Uh huh.
      Ryan's plan to eat Granny is the right side, catfood comm's  plan for granny to eat catfood is the center.

      Seems to me there's something missing in the above set.

      Liasson must have made that claim four times in the piece, but no mention of the utter absence of anything on the... what's that word again?
      L*ft?

      And so the possible has been defined. Somewhere beteen the catfood commission and Ryan's Death Panels is where we will end up come August.
      And it will be hailed as a victory for the Adults.

      I wanna puke.

      Sexual orientation is as irrelevent on the battlefield as military rank is in the bedroom.

      I am! !!!

      I'm really rethinking my support for Obama now!

      On the other hand, I'm going to vote for him of course!

      So there's really no reason for any rational corporate-owned fake Democrat in the White House to give a rat's ass what I think; and everything that's coming down the pike will just make me think some more but it won't cause me to give up hope or anything.

      Let's all remember that Obama is really a progressive! Remember how progressive he was in the campaign? Damn! That was some soaring progressive rhetoric! And someday I just really believe he's going to start acting like one! Or, you know, at least like a centrist!

      We don't need a third party. We need a second party.
