    I hate to say it , but I don't trust Obama, he is NOT a good negotiator and in the past has given too many concessions to try and get the other side to compromise (which the GOP never does).
    This is the most delusional piece of drivel I've read in quite some time. And it's even more disturbing that it received at least 7 recs.  Please name a single instance when Obama negotiated "poorly" (based on the votes he had in the house/senate).

        far more times than the WH. Only they will NEVER admit - and the media won't either.
