View Diary: Obama admits he's already conceded more than warranted (360 comments)

  •  In theory yes. (4+ / 0-)

    Once someone refuses an offer you have no moral (or legal) obligation to leave any part of the offer on the table.

    The problem is, as kos has pointed out, he seems to show no inclination to ever pull back a concession once it's out there.  So, you just keep saying no until the concessions pile up into acceptable territory.  There's never any sense of "I better take this deal now or I'll never see it again." on the GOP side.

    Honestly, I don't think any theories about Obama being a secret Republican are needed.  I became a little concerned when they started doing one-on-one meetings between him and Boehner.  I wonder if Boehner is just straight wearing him down.  Literally just plain fatigue.  Shoot, put me in a meeting for more than 2 hours on any subject and I'm ready to cry  uncle.  I can't imagine doing it over and over for days on end.
