Here's the conclusion to an otherwise good editorial in the WashPost: "Entitlement reform must be on the table".
At his news conference Wednesday, President Obama called for “a serious look at how we reform our entitlements,” advocated “compromise” and pronounced himself “ready and willing to make big commitments” on debt reduction. Sounds like a man who understands what is needed.Sweet Fancy Moses. Really, WashPost? Did he also say "we must protect our sacred promise" or "the time for action is now" or "we must overcome our differences"? Because if empty platitudes are the hallmark of understanding, then Obama's got a surplus. Also, dear editors, name a single entitlement reform that Obama has offered in four years at the helm. Just one. Oh, but the "understanding". That wisdom will be of great comfort for the baby busters when the Trust Funds dry up and benefits are automatically cut.
Extra - Ace: "Media distressed to learn that Democrats are quite serious about their shameful pandering on entitlements." Funny how that works. Pre-election: insouciance. Post-election: concern-trolling.
