    what it is Obama is missing about how '"negotiating is done," mightn't it be possible that there's something not-obvious that you're missing?  For instance, "acceptable solution," relative to what?  It might make sense to stave off immediate on-budget spending cuts (not sure of this one), but more relevantly, it might make sense to appear to take the Republicans up on an offer to show the Republicans, themselves, can't deliver.  If it were this easy, Obama would have thought of it.  And it's hard to square the notion that cuts are something Obama affirmatively wants, without something better in return, with his greatest accomplishment being the largest expansion of the social safety net in 45 years.

    Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.
