    who doesn't offer up cuts to SS, but then I'm a New Deal liberal.  Guess dKos is lurching to the right in lockstep with the democratic party.

      You aren't facing what Obama is facing right now. You aren't in his shoes. We can criticize, we can express concern, but reaching such a global conclusion is all too easy and cheap.

        often jumps on some of my posts to let me know he is a "real democrat"......

        not worth engaing him. he lives in his own little world and offers nothing constructive to any discussion he joins. he is a flame thrower and obviously gets his kicks by stirring up shit.

      •  So cutting SS is okie dokie (0+ / 0-)

        as long as the president is in a tight spot?  

        That is precisely the time when the president needs to stand firm!  Anyone can stand tall when the wind isn't blowing.

        Your comment is internally contradicting, by the way.  You say your fine with criticism (at least, you give permission by saying "we can criticize"), yet you find my comment troubling because it's too "global".  How is criticizing Obama for offering up cuts to SS anything other than a specific criticism?
