    ...Obama critique I've offered is Obama is a terrible negotiator (agreeing with kos, who explains it much better than I ever could).

    Having said that, I think Obama realized long ago the House crazies will kill anything with his (Obama's) fingerprints on it.

    Thereby cancelling out his terrible negotiator weakness.

    Yes, I think Obama is actually that clever.  It has nothing to do with chess metaphors.  It has everything to do with street smarts.

      make him a pretty good negotiator? Think about it for a bit.

      We are often so identified with whatever thoughts we may be having that we don’t realize the thoughts are a commentary on reality, and not reality itself. -- Gangaji
