    It's about negotiating 101.  You don't start with your actual bid in negotiating.  You don't tell your opponent what you're willing to do.  You don't keep folding with the same opponent.  These guys are horrible negotiators.  

    Could we get some poker players into office?  Some people who know how to bluff and when?  Some people who know how much to bet and when?  Cause right now we have a bunch of people in office who keep putting money in the pot and then folding time and again.  

    ...that cannot be a wise contrivance which in its operation may commit the government of a nation to the wisdom of an idiot. Thomas Paine Rights of Man
