    As Budget Fight Looms, Obama Sees Defiance in His Own Party

    WASHINGTON — For four years, President Obama counted on fellow Democrats to rally to his side in a series of epic battles with Republicans over the direction of the country. But now, deep in his fifth year in office, Mr. Obama finds himself frustrated by members of his own party weary of his leadership and increasingly willing to defy him.

    In recent weeks, disgruntled Democrats, particularly liberals, have bolted from the White House on issues like National Security Agency surveillance policies, a planned military strike on Syria and the potential choice of Lawrence H. Summers to lead the Federal Reserve. In private, they often sound exasperated describing Mr. Obama’s operation; in public, they are sometimes only a little more restrained.

    From deification to defiance, that's a long, long drop.

    Just more hopes and dreams from the out of touch and quickly decaying GOP.

    Other than the one on top of your head?  you know, the hat?  The CONE shaped hat on top of your head?  The one that has D-U-N-C-E written on it?

    Is there a point to this thread other than that?

    Well, no.

    Because they should do whatever he wants, when he wants it...?

    POTUS has faced opposition from his party on myriad issues from the start of his presidency.

     

    If only the dems were as lockstep in agreement as the repubs, huh...?  What fun that would be...

    It has always suprised me how creative skeeter is in coming up with complete and utter bullsh!t that a court jester would feel embarassed uttering.

    You've got to be a "progressive plant" just trying to make conservatives look like brain dead fruit flies....

    [/QUOTE]

    So, let me be as clear as possible:

    What is the supply side lie/issue to which you refer?

    Let me be even clearer: The need to ask the question disqualified you from the conversation.

     

    [/QUOTE]

    Or, your inability to supply the answer means you don't have one, but you thought you would throw out some insults.

    Yah, I think I stumbled onto the truth right there.

    I wrote you off a long time ago. Sometimes an amusement, but usual just incoherent stupidity.

    Hmm.  Makes a statement about there being a supply side lie, then can't back it up.

    Who's stupid?
