1. Don't even entertain the thought.

That is what he is saying.

5. Yes, but his concern suggests an inference that Obama *could* conceivably cut SS

So Sanders is slandering the President... if you want to look at it that way, and who wouldn't?

It is obviously impossible to think that Obama could agree to any SS benefit cut. Having done so a year ago he surely has it out of his system.

So I have to question Bernie's motives here.

Why caution against something that everyone knows is impossible?

6. I think I disagree with what "DUers can agree on..."

Or am I misunderstanding this? I'm with Bernie.

And who was "one of our greatest rhetoricians?"

11. All sane people agree with Bernie

The OP contains some satirical irony and/or sarcasm.

There is a very popular mode of thought hereabouts regarding the disloyalty of people who speak out against entitlement cuts.

9. You know the thread with the vomit slurping in the title got locked by a jury

Shame that. I think the ace rhetorician should own that analogy and be called out as apropos, but my commute awaits.

12. Isn't it ironic that you can say it about half of DUers, but not say it about

a man who is not a DUer, or even a Democrat?

Funny how that works.

15. Apparently you haven't been following what Sanders has said.

What he has been saying for YEARS, is that if they raise the cap on SS to 250k, there would be no need to cut it, and it would remain solvent for more than 75 years.

I also do not believe that they should cut Social Security, and that Bernie's proposal is the most sound out there. If it makes the president look "bad," than so be it. Social Security should not be part of the general fund any way. It was never meant to.

And as far as cutting entitlements, I don't see anyone in Congress calling for cuts to corporate "entitlements." Those I would stand for, but many times these things that they call entitlements, are programs that people actually paid into. These should not be called entitlements, but should be called prepaid benefits.

I think that more people should read the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and forget the damn bible.
