    Yeah, they certainly are not angry when you look at how the reps have gone after portman or O'rielly for caving on gay marriage. I am pretty sure that it is Ok to criticize the president. I know it is a little different than the republican party who likes to attack any out of step person, but I have not seen any of the so called fighting you are fantasizing about. I am also bringing up the reality you wanted cuts to entitlement programs, so you will get what you wanted. It is stupid to blame Obama for something the reps have been pushing for since the beginning. They are the reason social security will be cut if it is because it seems pretty obvious Obama would not do it without their pressure. You obviously see this causing hardship to certain voters and are already trying to spin it that this was what obama wanted. That is pretty sad to screw people over and then blame the person who was fighting against you as being the one who did it. But i expect nothing more from republicans.

    It is called bargaining. Just because you are compromising doesn't mean you don't try to get the best deal possible. Not every person in government marches in step like so many republicans do. For a party of supposed freedom they sure don't seem to have much freedom.

    Who would see it more.....new reporters or those that are on the inside or you? Which changes up nothing about any Demos being upset with Obama.

    Well great you know what the definition of compromise is.....But the Demos haven't offered up anything to Compromise with Obama about yet. First he has to deal with them then later on the Republicans. Which we will see what Demos come out and say something.

    Re: Official: Obama Proposes Cuts to Social Security

    Looks Like Sanders is the First to Speak out.....

    Sanders to Obama: Don’t touch Social Security



    Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, one of Congress’s most liberal members, is warning President Barack Obama not to “go back on his word” by offering to cut Social Security spending to reduce the deficit.

    “Millions of working people, seniors, disabled veterans, those who have lost a loved one in combat, and women will be extremely disappointed if President Obama caves into the long standing Republican effort to cut Social Security and benefits for disabled veterans and their survivors through a so-called chained CPI,” he said in a statement.

    Sanders has been waging a campaign opposing the use of chained CPI, which would mean lower annual cost-of-living increases for Social Security benefits and veterans, and reduce help to the poor. Making the change would cut federal spending by roughly $130 billion over 10 years. But it would also adjust how taxes are calculated, generating about $100 billion in new revenue over the same period.

    Obama will include it in his budget, to be unveiled April 10. Federal budgets are not like family budgets—they’re nonbinding spending road maps that serve chiefly as statements of political priorities and punching bags for political opponents. Even if Obama’s budget passes both the House and Senate (it won’t) and he signs it into law, it’s unlikely to have much impact on how Congress decides to spend federal dollars.....snip~

    Sanders to Obama: Don

    Did the Kool Aid Eaters and Drinkers want to have a Pow-wow before they get their talking points together?

    Wouldn't 10 trillion in two years either require a negative budget or massive increases in tax revenue? Which of those two options do you prefer?

    How can someone simultaneously call people members of some sort of cult while simultaneously posting about how divided said group is on a particular issue?

    Which did Ryans Plan address? I think his mark was 5 trillion. Obamas Budget proposal would cost us another 901 billion.....added onto the already 15-16 trillion.

    Moreover Ryan's Plan, would require a mix of spending and tax cuts.
