    If he asked for more, like a return to pre-sequester funding levels, he could negotiate that away and end up at what is currently the starting point.  It might be late in this round to go there, but in general, this type of negotiating strategy is much more effective than starting where you want to finish.  Especially when dealing with sociopaths.

    •  misterwade - if they were negotiating a budget (0+ / 0-)

      I would agree. In this specific situation as soon as the President puts demands on the table, he has lost the high ground.
