ok, no more crap about "obama caving". it's called a trial balloon. COMPLAIN TO CONGRESS.

complain to the white house.


THIS IS THE WAY POLITICS WORKS.

obama negotiates. negotiations go nowhere if you just stare at each other and say "no".
so boner made some proposals. if a deal is to be had, both sides have to look to give the other side SOMETHING to save face with their constituents.

at some point, someone suggested the contents of the trial balloon we're all hearing about an not liking. obama tells boner he'll think about it, i.e., leak it to the public and see how they react.

IF ALL WE DO IS GRIPE ABOUT OBAMA'S NEGOTIATING SKILLS ON DU, THEN WE LOSE AND BONER WINS.

obama needs to be able to go back to boner and say "sorry, i'd love to help you out but look, democrats in congres and the white house got these brazillion emails and phone calls and texts and posts and twits. my constituents won't let me agree to this. i tried, but now YOU gotta give ME something. THAT is how a president negotiates.


THIS IS NOTHING NEW, THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT FDR FAMOUSLY ASKED OF HIS CONSTITUENTS.

DON'T (just) COMPLAIN ABOUT OBAMA, **MAKE** HIM DO WHAT WE WANT HIM TO DO!!





this has been a public service announcement.
