    he thought that somehow a Grand Bargain along the lines of Bowles Simpson would've guaranteed Obama's re-election.  Rather, cutting Medicare and Social Security benefits along such lines would've guaranteed Obama's defeat.

    Nobody does spirited defenses of President Obama like Sully, but on the politics of safety net cuts he's clueless.

      I enjoy his blog because it presents so many topics and points of view, but he is really annoying on this issue.

      "Sully's still a conservative after all".

      I wish I could make democrats understand 1 thing.

      Don't compliment repugnantcons for seeming reasonable, in the end they all want the same thing and will vote the same way no matter how nice they talk.

      We need to start judging people by the policies they vote for not the image they project.  I'm seriously starting to blame my fellow citizens for voting for death and destruction as much as I blame the politicians for perpetrating it.

      As long as the party stands for the 1%, that is how they will vote. Every time.

      Btw, some of them are only on our side because of the lunacy coming from the baggers.  Really they aren't with us.

        a conservative, and in many ways he is.  But his positions on economic fairness have been evolving: he's okay with a progressive tax system, but thinks the tax code should be simplified.  He said he's support a 3-tiered system "in a heartbeat" and has suggested a return to Clinton-era tax levels.

        And he's voted for Obama in both elections.
        His wikipedia page needs some serious revision at this point.
