  •  were dems routed in 1983? (0+ / 0-)

    or is now just a totally different scene such that it would be guaranteed?  

    of course the GOP will never stop trying to destroy it; that is precisely why "fixing" it cannot be left up to them.  so the question is when is the best time, given that it won't be left alone?

      2010.  That routing was brought to us by BO and co.

      In 2012, BO got fewer votes than his first run partly because people now see him for what he is--a person who is only interested in himself.  And from what I've read recently about the election, he lost a huge chunk of independents that he originally had the first time around.

      If he had taken strong measures related to the economy, the banksters, and on and on, he most certainly would have kept his original votes, not lost the house, and creamed Romney.

      So, now he's selling us down the river again, and you're asking, 'when is the best time for this sellout?'

      We shouldn't be buying into [or promoting] the malarkey that the soc sec is in deep trouble, because it isn't.
