    what the headline writers think it means?

    "Obama: Republican Leaders Must Bend on Taxes"

    From the same story?

    But he did not explicitly say that he would reject a deal that did not eliminate such breaks, saying that he believed his adversaries would eventually agree to what Democrats have called a “balanced approach” that included trillions of dollars in spending cuts along with tax increases.

    I think the refusal to say he would reject the deal is the most important part of the story.   Every time the President has refused to take a "veto" stand on a major issue, he has moved.  Every time.  So my only question at this point is how far.
