"I have gone at least halfway in meeting some of the Republican concerns."

Obama's own words.

Despite winning the election, despite there being NO reason to give the GOP anything, Obama gave into his bi-partisan fetish and moved to the right HARD.

He just rescued the GOP from ignominious defeat by granting legitimacy to their demands by going "halfway".

Here's is my prediction of the deal:

1) GOP will get no tax increase up to $1 million.

2) GOP will get chained CPI cuts for Social Security.

3) Many people board will tell me Obama didn't cave, or make a bad deal, or that the "perfect is the enemy of the good" and the "compromise" was reasonable.

4. Obama negotiation

Obama: I'd like to stay alive.

GOP: We want to see you hanging from a tree.

Obama: Can we compromise with me giving myself a vigorous kick to my own balls?

GOP: If by compromise you mean us letting you kick yourself in the balls while we find a rope, yes, you Kenyan socialist fuck.

Obama: Bipartisan success!

9. And turned Republican talking points into bipartisan talking points.

We are bought and sold, and it's time to say, "enough."

7. I took away from his statement that he expects the

GOP to blow things up. They are incapable of doing anything but Norquist's bidding. We will go off the cliff and it will be them diving first and dragging the nation behind.

8. One can hope

but I have heard this noise before and it always meant capitulation.

Hope I am wrong.
