As more liberals call on President Obama to fire ex-Senator Alan Simpson from the Catfood Commission in the wake of Simpson's characterization of Social Security as "a milk cow with 310 million tits", the question in everyone's mind is: will it happen? Will the President fire Simpson?
Why not? Because Simpson is simply doing the job that President Obama hired him to do: make the case for cutting Social Security benefits. That's what Obama wants, and that's what Simpson is going to get him.
So, unless Andrew Breitbart releases a doctored videotape of Simpson, don't expect to see him get a pink slip from the President.
