The Washington Examiner's Conn Carroll writes:
Up until now the liberal media has been dutifully playing along with the preferred White House script that Obama is the "adult in the room" far above Washington politics. But at some point the facts will make it impossible for them to play along. It was Obama who played classic Washington politics by avoiding the tough budgetary decisions and appointed a debt commission. Then he cynically dismissed their work once they were done. Then Obama released a budget so out of touch with reality that the Senate rejected it 97-0. Then, when the House Republicans took a hard vote on a real budget scored by the Congressional Budget Office, Obama publicly rebuked House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and then presented his own plan that was so vague the CBO refused to even score it.
Now Obama is going on CBS Evening News, the news show with the oldest demographic, and is threatening to cut off senior citizens Social Security checks unless Republicans agree to raise taxes. Obama talks about "shared sacrifice" and that "everything must be on the table" but then he has kept Obamacare off limits.
