    Why should the Democratic Party necessarily have to spell out the cuts to Entitlements? It seems like it would be the Republican Party's responsibility to offer them first, if that is what they are so insistent on and then see if the Republican Party can persuade the Democratic Party to accept them.

    Obama has demonized the tea party, Romney, Paul Ryan, the Bowles-Simpson commission and anyone else who has put something on the table for discussion. Now it is his time to stand up and be counted. His "leadership" is atrocious. In 2008 Nancy Peolsi said to pass the Affordable Care Act so that we could read it and find out what it said. Now the president is using that same smoke and mirrors. No other business, institution, NGO or fraternal organization could be run in this haphazard fashion except Greece and Italy. Harvard Business would flunk him out of their school.

    What cuts? Obama can not, will not make any entitlements cuts. It goes against everything he believes, the very idea is highly toxic to him. He is the re-distribution, food stamp "social justice" President! How could he possibly explain to his constituents how he will cut their precious entitlements! That's why it isn't going to happen!
