    is the dead-enders on this site and elsewhere on the "left" who keep denying that he's doing this, or claiming that it's either brilliant 11DC or something he has no choice but to do, because sequester.

    It's not a cut!

    Ok, it's a cut, but it'll never get passed, and is his way of messing with the GOP to make them look bad.

    Ok, it might get passed, but he has no choice. Repubs control the house and can block anything in the senate, and Ben Nelson dammit!

    Why don't you purists shove it you're not the boss of me whaaaaaaa!

    •  I was rather shocked at KOS' front page diary (0+ / 0-)

      basically saying this was 11tyeth dimensional chess.  
      That Obama really didn't want this.

      I mean, really?  It doesn't get much more clear than this. The guy offered up Social Security cuts on a silver platter without even being asked (except, perhaps, by his pals in Wall Street).

        as validating the 11DC take, just saying that this MAY be Obama's strategy. I have no idea. I can't read Obama's mind.
