  •  If Dems are to get fired up for 2014 (7+ / 0-)

    then Schumer and company need to back off the Simpson Bowles talking points, unless we are determined to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

    Dems will not turn out if their own starts sticking knives in the New Deal between now and next November.

     

    This all started with "what the Republicans did to language".

    •  Simpson Bowles arise from the grave: (1+ / 0-)

      New ad from Monday Oct 14

      The Campaign to Fix the Debt, the $40 million dollar astroturf “supergroup” that CMD exposed on the cover of the Nation magazine, has shifted into high gear in an effort to leverage the debt ceiling crisis into cuts to Social Security and Medicare.

      Today, the group launched a six figure TV ad buy that reaches new heights of hypocrisy -- and that is saying a lot.

      Former U.S. Senator Alan Simpson and Morgan Stanley board member Erskine Bowles have long been spokespersons for Fix the Debt. The "folksy" Simpson: "For cryin' out loud, Erskine, who isn't fed up with what's goin' on in Washington?" The Bowles tsk tsk: “These politicians are playing games jerking our country around from crisis to crisis.”
