    Then it looks like he didn't try and people blame him for the cliff. But I think the White House leaked its proposal the other day in order to dare Republicans to reject it, making it a last best offer.

      I guarantee you Bush or Reagan would...Clinton did and allowed the government to shut down...

      the more he shows he is willing to concede anything, the more he will be asked to concede...it is piss poor idiotic negotiation...
