about how “compromise” in politics means that the conservatives do what the liberals want, sometimes for a promise of future conservative actions? (which almost never show up….)
So now, when Obama fumes at Republican refusal to “compromise,” it is likely that he is actually being sincere rather than disingenuous. After all, he is accustomed to getting what he wants from conservatives, and may rarely have faced a situation before where the stakes were high enough for the opposition to take a firm stance and not be quickly swayed by his silver tongue and his let-us-reason-together demeanor.
That makes a worrying amount of sense….
