    Tut-Tut.

    Tisk-Tisk.

    This is merely an opening move by our Democratic Champion, Obama.

    I'm sure there's still plenty more cuts to be made in social programs - but first, it's important to set the stage in the Kabuki Theater of the Absurd.

    Ya know - he had no choice cause Rethuglicans control the House.

    He had no choice cause the Debt ceiling must be raised or Wall Street will be furious.

    etc...

    As a hardcore Democrat, Obama has shaken my faith. Imagine what he's done for independents.

        And here I was trying to offer up excuses as to why social programs will be cut, or more importantly, set up so they have to be cut.

        Here's a thought:

        Wall Street wants the debt ceiling to be raised - it is, for them, a key requirement.

        So why not call the Rethuglican's bluff and see if they hate social programs more than they fear Wall Street?

        The answer:

        Because when you choose a bankster thug as your Chief of Staff, chances are damn good you're not opposed to the plutocracy or its goals.

        But that ol' Rethuglican boogeyman sure does make for some fine excuses.
