Compromiser-in-Chief is at it again.
An 8/7/2012 NYT article said of Obama: “He particularly believes that Democrats do not receive enough credit for their willingness to accept cuts in Medicare and Social Security, …”
And according to an AP interview on 8/25/2012:
Obama also offered a glimpse of how he would govern in a second term of divided government, insisting rosily that the forces of the election would help break Washington’s stalemate. He said he would be willing to make a range of compromises with Republicans, confident there are some who would rather make deals than remain part of “one of the least productive Congresses in American history.”
If Republicans are willing, Obama said, “I’m prepared to make a whole range of compromises” that could even rankle his own party. …
But, Joe Biden promises there’ll be no cuts to Social Security during a second Obama term. Hmmmmm.
UPDATE: BTW, FDL has a signature campaign, Hold The Obama Campaign To Its ‘Guarantee’ of ‘No Changes’ To Social Security.
