    seeking to cut Social Security, we weakened him and made him "vulnerable", thereby forcing him to cut Social Security.

    It will be absolutely obvious that he'd never have done it if we had all just uplifted him with our magical support rays, and personally attacked everyone we ever encountered who was critical of his policies.

    I'm not joking.

    income gains to the top 1% from 2009 to 2011 were 121% of all income increases. How did that happen? Incomes to the bottom 99% fell by 0.4%

      I can see the batshit logic in the "this is just Obama Derangement Syndrome" and "nobody cares about Chained CPI" "defenses" that are popping up already in response to the backlash.

      There is a faith-based component to kneejerk Democratic Party boosterism that is very dangerous to the Democratic Party most of all.

      This is a time where 'trusting them' is like letting them close themselves in a garage filling up with carbon monoxide and turning your back.

      I know you aren't joking.

      I expect the 2014 debacle to be blamed on the people who tried to stop it by the faith-based who see themselves as the smartest people in the room.

      I am from the Elizabeth Warren and Darcy Burner wing of the Democratic Party
