Tomorrow the President will offer his vision of a budget. This video reminds us what he used to say about Social Security, when he wanted our votes. Everything so far leaked about the upcoming speech suggests he will break the promises he made on the campaign trail.
And that's not even mentioning what he'll be willing to give away from Medicare, Medicaid, and, most astonishingly, his own weak healthcare insurance reform. All this for "a deal" that impresses independent voters who aren't paying attention and want harmony between Democrats and Republicans. Such flopping about may even be a winning re-election strategy -- or not. But if this is what Obama does with his administration, why did he bother to go through the arduous effort to become President in the first place? He's not writing a success story -- quite the contrary.
