  •  Obama never forced the GOP... (0+ / 0-)

    to publicly list their demands – i.e. what specifically the GOP wants to cut, and in what amounts -- and sell their unpopular agenda to the public.

    That is the problem

    Instead, Obama decided to enter into one-on-one backroom negotiations with Boehner.

    Whatever cuts emerge will fly under the banner of bipartisanship... Until the next election cycle, when the GOP pins the blame on the Democrats.
