Obama is Posturing on the Cliff With His SocSec cut Proposal

It seems that Boehner is not going to budge from his Plan B. Essentially it is so much posturing so that Obama appears as the reasonable one in the debate.

We are quickly heading for the cliff that isn't a cliff now.

2. Given this story, it seems like Boehner's final position before Jan. 1

From the news conference yesterday, it seemed that Obama was rejecting THIS... IF it is the Republican's final position.

3. Bargaining Social Security cuts as a decoy is NOT reasonable discourse.

The American public will NOT see such an act as posturing. They'll see it as being damned either with Republicans or Democrats.

Seriously when are Democrats going to stand up for Democratic ideals again? Do they expect Republicans to do it for them??
