  •  History is littered with politicians who came out (0+ / 0-)

    fighting for something that was necessary or unpopular and swayed the nation, the people, or a couple policians.

    I agree an AWB is a tough-road today, but there are plenty of other measures he could have put a hard demand upon and followed up with arm-twisting politics.

    Fact is, he is not an arm-twisting politician.  And he's fully willing to walk back on his very own positions, because "the deal" is more important to him than his own stated goals.

    He's done that exact same thing - as describe above and walking back his own goals without even being asked - over and over.  We've got over four years of experience with him now.

    He wants a deal, not a fight.  If it comes down to it, he drops his own demands (and even before it comes down to it).
