  •  Not sure who Obama is rope-a-doping. (8+ / 0-)

    If by that you mean the Republicans are divided over his proposal(s), then yes. But by that measure, he also also rope-a-doped the Democrats, since many are opposed to him putting Social Security and Medicare on the chopping block.

    But more importantly, you are declaring the diarist wrong based on an event you think will happen. By that reasoning, YOU are wrong based on an event that has not happened.

    However, benefits cuts have been proposed by both the White House and the Republicans. Therefore, predicting this may come to pass is more rooted in reality.

    Speaking of which, the reality is that Obama is pushing for benefit cuts plus whatever modest increase in taxes on the rich. The latter has the GOP in a lather and the former the Democrats.

    Finally, sometimes both sides are losers. Not all gun duels end with a single person standing. Sometimes both sides get shot.
