    Obama has some how managed to turn this around from a point of advantage to the point owning up to  awful concession and chasing the eight ball and now put democrats in a position where they have to carry the anchor around their neck for social security cuts.

    I know some would like to believe that Obama is some grand master playing chess, putting lives and benefits of low income groups at risks fully aware and confident of outcomes.

    I'm not sure. I think he genuinely continues to believe in the righteousness of capitulation.  He is not a fighter and doesn't like extended periods of confrontation.  He is weak and tends to blink first.

    If anyone watched the press conference this afternoon, it is clear Obama is in the mood for further concessions, especially with the tax cuts, extending them further to those who earn $500,000 to $600,000.

    Boehner looks better this week than ever was since the election.
