  •  I still contend it has nothing............. (3+ / 0-)

    to do with playing poker or negotiating skills.  It is BHO's desire to have the "Grand Bargain" or what would be historically significant great compromise as a part of his legacy.

    It is about his self-perception as one who can "reach out to his enemies and make a deal."  Therefore, the "deal" itself is far more important than the details or whom it hurts or helps.  

    Of course, it could also be kabuki and he is offering what he knows the Rethugs will still not accept.  If not, I hope the Dems in the Senate protect Social Security if Boner accepts BHO’s chained CPI offer.
