    Claiming the Republican agenda as his own

    TURNS OUT the president many expected to revive the New Deal is out to bury it instead.

    That's the inescapable conclusion following President Barack Obama's offer to trade cuts in the Social Security and Medicare programs--part of a projected $4 trillion in reductions over 10 years--in exchange for Republican votes to raise the U.S. debt ceiling by August 2.

    In return for giving the Obama administration the authority to keep borrowing to finance government operations, Republicans were expected to bow to modest tax increases that will annoy the superrich and outrage Tea Party ideologues in the short term--but would actually lock in tax rates for the wealthy at historic lows over the long term.

    I'm sorry, I couldn't be buggered to read "propaganda" passed as intelligent discourse. FYI You cannot have socialism and democracy in the same country, the two are not congruent.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Seems to work fine for all those democratic socialists in Canada and Europe... oh hey... I guess you're wrong. Imagine that. Do you know what congruent means?

    He always was fairly moderate. The only people who really thought he was a socialist are the extreme right who paint anyone to their left with that brush.

    Very well said. When I see some on the far right label Obama as a Marxist I come to the conclusion that they have no real idea what true Marxist is or perhaps they are identifying the president as a fan of DUCK SOUP and A NIGHT AT THE OPERA.

    That is not true...in the beginning of the Obama presidency he was as left as left can get led by a fully liberal left wing house....he has since morphed to the center to try and be like clinton and get re elected....I believe Obama is as liberal as it gets..

    Here are my thoughts and Reality..........

    Liberalism is a Complete Lie and Utter Fraud.......As is every form of Statism around the world

    ....so your disappointed that Obama wasnt able to deliver the gumdrops and lollipops he promised.......well guess what DM.......there are plenty of Socialists, Liberals, Progressives, Communists, Marxists, Leninists around the world who have the same view of their Statist leaders.

    As you grow older, wiser and less liberal, your going to realize the liberal utpoia you were promised has never existed and will never exist.......instead you will see poverty stricken crime laden unemployed bankrupt liberal ****holes wherever Statism is empowered......and a Hope for Change that never happens.

    You're using his record as a Senator, as opposed to his record as President?

    Really?

    Figures.
