5. Nobody ever pays attention to the President's weekly radio and carfax. It's all in there:
Edited on Sat Jul-09-11 04:43 PM by leveymg
This is the part that really frightens me: "we agree on some of the big things": /

" We agree that that, both sides are going to have to step outside their comfort zones and make some political sacrifices . . . That means taking on spending in our domestic programs and our defense programs. It means addressing the challenges in programs like Medicare.

". . . And we agree that we simply cannot afford to default on our national obligations for the first time in our history"

That means that Obama has basically accepted the GOP framework for "bridging the gap": cuts in Medicare in exchange for a deal on raising the national debt.

He's basically agreed to the terms of the nation being taken hostage by the Right-wing. All that remains is working out the precise numbers for cuts.
