    4 years did Obama ever do that.  He's going to play this exactly the same as all the other times he "caved."

    •  You may be right (0+ / 0-)

      He would be a massive historical fool if you were. But perhaps he's exploiting his tendency to cave in the past to advantage now, since Repubs, assuming he'll cave again, are therefore more likely to publically agree to what they view as much smaller concessions, while he has publically agreed to nothing yet.

      We'll see.
