    Well, clean enough:  McConnell's original proposal.

    Obama has a spine it turns out:  He wants to cut SS, Medicare, and Medicaid, despite the strong opposition of those who elected him and even opposition from a lot of McCain voters.

    Obama appears to show no spine when dealing with Repugs (maybe because he agrees with them?), but plenty when dealing with everyone else.

    Reid, I think, is well-intentioned but lacking a spine.
