I’ve got to say I’m getting tired of this.  Twice a year Obama threatens to cut Social Security through the chained CPI.  Twice a year liberals (me included) start screaming,  “Omigod, Omigod, Omigod, Obama a Democrat is cutting Social Security.”  Twice a year Republicans refuse Obama’s bargain on Social Security.  And twice a year we move on to some other issue.  Has it occurred to anybody that maybe Obama is making fools of us all?  Obama knows the Republicans aren’t going to accept his deal.  The Republicans know they aren’t going to accept his deal.   We know the Republicans aren’t going to accept his deal.  The media know the Republicans aren’t going to accept his deal.  Obama knows the Republicans know that they aren’t going to accept his deal.  We know that Obama knows the Republicans know they aren’t going to accept his deal.  The media knows that we know that Obama knows that the Republicans know that Obama knows that the Republicans aren’t going to accept his deal.  Obama knows that the media knows that we know that Obama knows that the Republicans know that Obama knows that they aren’t going to accept his deal.  At this point I am tired of this god damned road show of the Princess Bride.  Let’s go start another land war in Asia and be done with it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
