    But how does one EVER know when someone's bluffing?

    You can't, you can only look at the results.

    Honestly though, bluff isn't really the most correct label for it.  It was really a negotiation tactic that Obama may or may not have been serious about. He did totally withdraw it after The Tea Party Rebellion yesterday though. So there's that.

    This post is dedicated to myself, without whom, I'd be somebody else. Though I'd still be an asshole. My Music: [http://www.myspace.com/beetwasher]

      mind reading.

      All we can go on is the available circumstantial evidence

      The strangeness here is that we have a bunch of people engaged in fantasy telling those of us looking at the circumstantial evidence to ignore it based on your feeling that you know what's in the president's heart of hearts.

      As I wrote above, if this weer a court of law, where the two parties must demonstrate a prima facie case for their position, your position would lose miserably. You essentially respond to the mountain of evidence bys aying its fantasy and then proceed to tell us a fantasy you thinkw e sshould believe.

      Why does your opinion trump the circumstantial evidence that people like David Mixer have posted here? That's what you need to answer, but seem to refuse to do so.

      Do we know that the President isn't bluffing? Can we prove it? I'm just asking questions here.
