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.
