Barack Obama, President Obama — January 26, 2011 at 2:19 pm

Oh, look. The president isn’t throwing poor people under the bus.


As I predicted last weekend, the President proved last night he isn’t going to cut benefits for the poor and others on Social Security.

From his second State of the Union Address:

To put us on solid ground, we should also find a bipartisan solution to strengthen Social Security for future generations. We must do it without putting at risk current retirees, the most vulnerable, or people with disabilities; without slashing benefits for future generations; and without subjecting Americans’ guaranteed retirement income to the whims of the stock market.

I’m going to file this under “Supports the Poor” in my Obama files. As I predicted, based on his long history of protecting the rights and the voice of people at the lower echelons of the socioeconomic scale, the President took cutting Social Security benefits off the table.

Cue the Obama-hating left’s claims that he did this because they set his feet on fire. Either that or they will criticize him for not doing it a week or a month earlier (as if that would have somehow made a significant difference of some kind or another.)

Honestly, fighting friendly fire from the left gets so goddam tiring sometimes.

I’m just sayin’…
