President Obama and obscure 1980s movies, for the second time in a week:
In the 1987 movie “No Way Out,” Gene Hackman plays the Secretary of Defense, feuding with a Senator whose pet project is to build a submarine “as big as a city.”
One adulterous affair and probable manslaughter investigation later, the Senator catches Hackman at a vulnerable (and potentially explosive) moment. To the rescue leaps Hackman’s chief of staff, who deftly reverses his boss’ position, ending the fued and defusing the situation.
The promised payoff in hand, the Senator backs off.
President Obama is pressing congressional leaders to consider a far-reaching debt-reduction plan that would force Democrats to accept major changes to Social Security and Medicare in exchange for Republican support for fresh tax revenue.
Please note: I’m not suggesting Obama is involved in an adulterous affair or manslaughter. Just that he’s in a vulnerable spot, and could use a little situational defusing. Better be careful, of course. Democrats will try to hang any changes to Social Security right around Evil Republican necks next year, once they’ve done their damndest to terrify every senior citizen they can.
