Is President Obama on the verge of handing Republicans yet another victory?

According to sources within the White House – the President is planning on announcing deep cuts to Social Security in his State of the Union address next month. Hoping to preempt Republican calls to cut the social safety net and show some seriousness about trimming the deficit – President Obama will once again shirk his progressive base and embrace Republican ideology. If he thought the left was angry over the tax cut capitulation – just wait until he sees the outrage from progressives over cutting Social Security less than a month after extending a budget-busting, deficit spending tax cut for millionaires and billionaires.
