    Because he knows he's going to cave on it and doesn't want people to be more let down than they will be.  If he credited a strong stance against the Repub Medicare war, he would look even more two-faced when he goes in their direction.

    He'll cave on the debt ceiling - he already by even discussing a debt reduction deal to pass it - and he'll cave on entitlements.  Wait for it.

      to get a lot of cuts in areas where cuts should go. Yes there are some not good but they can be replaced.

      and No we can't have everything we want.

      I'm asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about real change in Washington ... I'm asking you to believe in yours. Barack Obama
