54. And how about Major Unions and tons of Liberal Groups who agree with Greenwald?

All of whom worked to elect Obama? Are they bullshitters also now that they are launching a huge effort to stop this Grand Bargain from going through?

Liberals Fear Lame Duck Betrayal By Incumbent

You're going to be very busy trashing all the messengers over the next few months. It might be easier to realize that the election is over and start addressing the issues for a change.

Major labor unions and dozens of liberal groups working to elect President Obama are worried he could “betray” them in the lame-duck session by agreeing to a deal to cut safety-net programs.

While Obama is relying on labor unions and other organizations on the left to turn out Democratic voters in battleground states, some of his allies have lingering concerns about whether he will stand by them if elected.

The liberal groups are planning to launch an aggressive campaign immediately after Election Day to pressure Obama and Senate Democrats not to endorse any deal that cuts Medicare and/or Social Security benefits.

The coalition has yet to be formally announced, so organizers are reluctant to speak publicly about the effort or disclose the full membership of the coalition.

It is expected to include the AFL-CIO, the Service Employees International Union, Campaign for America’s Future, members of the Strengthen Social Security coalition and dozens of other groups, according to sources familiar with the effort.


There is no time to waste. Big Corporate Lobbyists have been busy and we have learned that we must get busy also. This movement is starting NOW, these issues are of the utmost importance to the American people.

So are all these groups just anti-Obama, bullshitters etc and do you have any interest in the issues they intend to raise? You haven't stated where you stand on SS.

Bernie Sanders will be very involved with this coalition. Is he a bullshitter also?
