Would President Obama sign a budget bill that would
turn back the clock on Medicare,Medicaid,Social Security,just for the bragging rights and to say.."I prevented a shutdown"
Would he once again give in without a fight to Repukes and Tea Baggers for what his advisor's would encourage him to do for political gain? I believe he would.He is not a Democrat and he allows the Repukes to set the agenda and he follows.

A change we can believe in..oh yeah..??

2. it's all in *the message* -- gotta have that *positive* pr
totally downplay the destruction of the social safety net to play up what he's *done* - averted a shutdown.

Avert a shutdown on the dying bodies of the poor and middle class.

Change we can believe in, right?

4. "He is not a Democrat "
If you believe that, why would you expect him to not go along with Republicans?

5. Oh yeah, he will totally cave and then say he did it for "working families effected by... yada yada"
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 09:39 AM by Erose999
Same way he did with taxes. The spin on it will be that he's "looking out for the little guy" and protecting federal payments like social security etc.

He will completely sell out the future of social security to Eddie Munster and Agent Orange so that Grandma might not miss a week or two of payments.

9. HIGHLY DOUBTFUL. He just announced his run for reelction.
Do you seriously think he'd do that? NOT-GOING-TO-HAPPEN. The Dems are already in a win-win situation if the THUGS do shutdown the Gov. He doesn't have to give shit to them.

11. It has to get to his desk before he can sign it, so why not ask will Democrats
in the Senate allow such a thing.. Remember it will take sixty votes in the Senate...

13. Are you paying attention? The current fight is over what to cut. Dems not agreeing to what Repukes
want to cut.

Obama has met them on the numbers, but he is pushing for example Defense cuts where they are pushing EPA cuts.

16. Would INdemo
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 10:18 AM by sharp_stick
jump off a bridge if Obama ever did something that INdemo actually predicted and then immediately pretended actually happened?

This crap was getting old a long time ago. Now it's just boring revenge fantasy bullshit engaged in for the simple reason that it gives the OP a chance for a reacharound rec from the same "true believers" every time.
