  •  First of all...not in the president's offere (8+ / 0-)

    and the republicans asked for it are not the same.

    2.   The President had this in his offer last summer, so Carney is being misleading at best.

    3.  Who care who put it on the table first?  What is this?  Kindergarten?

    •  Of course, you don't care. You are contented to (0+ / 0-)

      suggest that the President somehow pulled this offer out just because we know Obama is so dastardly.... This whole diary is about the President making the offer. What are you talking about with "Who cares"?

      What we have here is a series of negotiations within a dynamic. The full scope of which none of us here and certainly none of the eternal anti-Obama critics have any knowledge of..... So, by all means, let's accuse Carney of lying. It is much more conducive to the anti-White House rhetoric.

        by the slightest measure, and i don't think it matters one whit who put cuts to SS on the table.  a ten cent SS cut shouldn't be on anyone's table.   i suggest a dynamically robust negotiation without social security mentioned even in passing.

        i quoted st ronnie above, now i'll quote idiot mitt:  it's the principle here.  democrats don't touch the third rail.

          There is little to be left of the democratic party once they start dismantling the programs they built and defended over the past decades.
