    If SS and further Medicare cuts are made in this deal, Obama can kiss my vote goodbye. And I won’t dilute my vote by staying home or voting third party.

    Doesn’t Panetta sound just like Rumsfeld, circa 2003, with his “weeks, not months” scenario? It’ll just be so easy, Panetta says. But it never is. Same crap, different administration. How do I get off this ride?

  • Because the fawning press wasn’t a big enough clue? They fawned over Bush, too, and I’m sure you were able to see that clear enough.

    Speaking of Bush, just like with him, there were clues all over the place about Obama, but some just didn’t want to see them. That’s kind of the problem with blind partisanship, and why people would do well to cultivate players in both parties, or empower a new party.

  • Some of us saw this in 2008. We were called racists and bitter deadenders, among other names. Suddenly Party Unity My Ass doesn’t sound so stupid, does it?

  • The link to the actual response from McKinsey is the fifth link on this page, after the links to the partisan sites ThinkProgress & TPM, s well as the quote that shows Republicans quoting the study. This seems designed to provoke the reptile brains of your more partisan readers.

    I read the full comments posted by McKinsey and have followed this story closely since the beginning. They never claimed the study was an economic forecast and always said it gauged the opinions of employers who had influence in the benefits decisions of their companies. They have walked back nothing. If anything, they have appeased the repeated requests of a White House that would very much like for another narrative to fly.

    It’s really sad that this is how low the Democratic Party that I once loved has fallen, relying on propagandists to dog whistle their way to an irrational and angry electorate. Looking increasingly like Republicans circa 2003. I’m beginning to think the only answer is a big fat no on voting for candidates of either legacy party. It seems like whichever one gets in, their side turns more authoritarian.

    I like this and was moved by it. Thanks for sharing the real story.

    A perfect case in point. I have a different point of view, so of course my genitals must be verbally attacked. This is what the left does to women it doesn’t approve of. It’s been sickening to watch the least few years.

    Right, because my facts being slightly off makes it so much easier for you to ignore the very real cooties game you continue to play,. Politics is not elementary school. It’s time for the grown ups to take control.

    They both do do it. The Democrats, for example, had a map in 2008 just like Sarah Palin’s last year, in which targets were used for republican incumbents. You won’t be reading about that on any so-called progressive blogs. That is not false eq

    How about this. The GUNMAN is responsible. Our collective vitriol created the environment where his snapping would point in a political direction. You are in denial if you think the left is any better than the right. A pox on both your houses.

    This is a load of crap. Both sides are guilty here, and the gunman was espousing political views from both sides. The right used to be crazy, and it’s true they still are. But the left has become increasingly unhinged itself, and quite reactionary. So reactionary that it can’t even make sense out of what [...]
