    there was pressure from within his own party to push Obama to be a little tougher in negotiations.
    Seems to me it's important to keep pushing Obama in the correct direction. Given his past performance I don't think it's his natural inclination.
    I'm still concerned about him even allowing Social Security cuts to even be entertained in the negotiations. And no, I don't think it was some multi-dimensional chess move.
    And I think it's a mistake to "trust" him to do the right thing. He's not a saint. He's not a genius. He's just another guy in the White House. If you want him to do the correct thing you have to point the way and insist he do it.
