Are Obama And Third Way Demos Prepared To Beat Wavering Demos and Progressives-

into submission over a deal that includes cuts in Social Security, Medicare, and most domestic programs. Is he willing to give the GOP 98% of what they wanted the last time just to get a deal?

2. Meanwhile, John Boehner lays weeping in a pool of his own sick.

With Obama's foot print on his ass.

3. Looks that way....Obama will not let the GOP lose

Boner comes into these negotiations fresh off a lost presidential election and having lost some seats in the House. All polls show that Americans want taxes to be raised on the wealthy and agree that Social Security, Medicare should be left alone. On top of all that Boner is still saddled with the tea partiers in his caucus making it near to impossible to achieve any consensus.

So, negotiating from an extreme position of weakness Boner is able to get the President of the United States (D) to propose cuts to Social Security.

WTF? Incompetent negotiating or an agreement between Obama and the Republicans that benefits need to be cut?

I think the latter

4. That's his master plan. Then he'll mutate into the 4th way because of his hatred of Liberals.

Then he'll come for us first wayers. Beware and keep expecting the worst.

5. Some of you have gone completely over the edge. It's not helping anything.
