    issues, which of course is not going halfway on everything (and in fact, is probably somewhat expected that on some things they would get more and some things we would get more"

    I actually had someone try to argue that Obama started at $1.6T in taxes, and may go down to $1T in taxes, so that's a GOP win because the GOP proposal is $800 billion in taxes, as if the GOP starting position wasn't new taxes.

    Well yes, if you compare Obama's starting position vs. GOP's current position vs. Obama's latest position, it's going to look like Obama is going more than halfway. It's also a dumb way to look at who is "winning"
