    the problem is, and has been from Day 1 of Obama's first term, the fact that the GOP has a scorched-earth agenda.  They don't want to cooperate.  They don't want compromise.  Period.  That is obvious to the casual observer.  Hell, they vote against bills they authored.  What does that tell you?
    Ergo, any compromise is solely on the Dem's side.  It's racism, it's "We Want Our Country Back" tea-bagger BS, it's Wall Street shenanigans, whatever.
    The bottom line is, and always has been, the GOP wants this president to fail.  
    In this construct, what IS the point of bending over backwards?  To create a bigger target?

      of progressives or liberals or the Democratic Party....he's the President of the United STATES. He's got an obligation to serve the people even those who didn't vote for him. And he's still got a Congress to deal with, one chamber which is controlled by the GOP. So he's just trying to do the right thing by reaching out to them. I give him alot of credit for that. You all should too.
