A tumblr to explain President Obama's negotiating skills

I think this sums it up better than panicked blog posts or other articles

http://negotiatingwithobama.tumblr.com/

The question is, do we actually have a solution?

2. It hurts me to laugh at those

but that is where we are. A master orator as President. A complete waste as a negotiator.

The only real question is, can anybody really be that bad at negotiating or is he selling us out on purpose?

At this point I don't even want to know the answer. Either way it sucks.

3. Not a solution, just a realization that President Obama is not "negotiating."

 

The whole thing is nothing but a big smoke screen while he accomplishes his long time goal of cutting SS.

4. yes. Go over the "cliff." Negotiate in January. "do nothing" would work quite

well as a solution. Much better than this.

5. It's not a fiscal cliff but a fiscal bluff. The GOP began Operation Obama One-Termer in 2008.



That's the first Picture in a nutshell.

Second picture is nothing Obama would say. It's typical Tea Party tough guy talk.

Third picture says, 'maybe' and the next would read 'maybe not.'

I'm not going to jump off a bridge over the latest sound bites and rumors. Nothing official has come out the White House.

6. "I suspect that on Social Security, we've got a somewhat similar position," said Obama to Romney

in the first debate.

(the problem might not be negotiating skills...)

8. That's always the quandry

But he's at least expected to negotiate for the 61 million people who voted him into office, whether he agrees with them or not

11. I'm beginning to think we have two Republican Parties

One consists of angry white men, the other is better looking.
