  •  Don't worry....they've got this (6+ / 0-)
    The White House adds that it feels it can win any political fight on entitlements — even if Republicans try to tie Obama to the Social Security cuts — after the successful test case of the 2012 campaign, when Republicans tried to make an issue of the $700 billion in Medicare savings contained in Obamacare, but didn’t land any body blows.

    I am trying to tell you...they are planning on this passing, and since they are running, they are willing to assume the 2014 campaign will replicate 2012.

    Yes...they are that crazy.

      is what is troubling everyone. And the myriad of consequences that come with that from a Dem Pres. Maybe someone in the WH can understand that. I'm not sold on their reasoning. Yes, they're crazy.

    •  What test case? (3+ / 0-)

      There was no test case.  No one attacked Obama on SS cuts.  THERE IS NO TEST CASE!!!  Unless they consider the utter failure of their pathetic "attack" on the Ryan plan as the test case.  If that's the case, they will lose big time.

      GODSPEED TO THE WISCONSIN FOURTEEN!

      they are trying to offer up House and Senate Dems for some magic Obama legacy...

      If Dems don't part ways stat, they only have themselves to blame...

    •  Who would ever be appeased (0+ / 0-)

      by their argument that in exchange for cuts to earned benefits programs there's infrastructure spending, green tech, pre K- 12 spending, etc included in the budget? Yes, those are good things but they are not decades of SECURITY for millions of people! ugh

      •  want to blow supporters minds.. (1+ / 0-)

        ask them if he "really" supports those...because remember, according to them, the budget document is not really what the President wants...its just a mirage...
