Thanks for the link to the Daniel Heniger article. Finally - inclusion of something that isn't part of the liberal ra-ra cheerleading team. You felt compelled to also link to an Obamapologist (Chait) with his pleas of denial, but at least we saw a perspective the DNC wouldn't approve of.

It's pretty obvious that I'm not an Obama fan but even my liberal friends have noticed his growing dislplays of frustration and anger. His mocking is getting even worse. He is only deepening the polarization and if liberals want any more of the agend passed after the 2010 election, they had better convince him to stop mocking and demonizing over half of the country with his arrogant snide remarks. The people who support him eat this stuff up but he hasn't yet realized that he can't pander to his core supporters any more.

It's never well explained what "less" people want from government. Do they want less social security? Do they want less homeland security? Do they want less money for federal student loans? They don't specify, they just want less.

I'd be willing to go along with it if any politician would propose cuts that were uniform. It's hypocritical to cut programs that help the poor but not to cut military contracts.

If someone said, "I want to cut medicare by 10%, lower taxes by 10%, and reduce our overseas military commitments by 10%" I'd be fine with that.

Ron Paul is probably the only one crazy enough to say that.
