  •  Obama wanted it and the Repubs didn't play along (4+ / 0-)

    He himself wanted to propose it - his whole history with SS says so.  And he expected to use the Repubs as cover, which has been him MO all along.  Except this time he got caught out by the Repubs and now he's trying to back and fill.  

    So .... where he fucked up from his point of view was not putting it in his budget, that, like you say, is what he wanted, but rather expecting the Repubs to play their part and agree with him or try to make it even worse.  Instead, they called him on it like they were good Democrats!
