Intro: "Remember back when Barack Obama talked about being a transformational president? You know, how Reagan was one, Clinton wasn't, and Obama himself would be? Whatever happens in the ongoing whatever happens in the next election, we already know that this is a fantasy. The news that Obama is willing to place Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid on the poker table reveals yet again, and more starkly than ever before, what's most important to him. It's not to lead. It's not to fight. It's not even to win. It's to be the most reasonable and unflappable person in the room."
