1. Realistically there will eventually have to be some deal

of some sort. I too would like to hear him say that, but I suspect it will not be the case.

2. he kinda can't say that without losing public support.

he could say "no mini-deal; grand bargain or nothing".

or he could set a deadline for a serious deal, e.g., by the state of the union address.


he's doing well politically on this because the republicans look like the difficult ones.

4. I hope he does.

 

Tonight, or start all over in the morning - and every day the Republicans stall on negotiations is another day EVERYONE pays higher tax rates.

'ObamaCare' would then have a companion term to last through future administrations: The 'Obama Tax Cuts'. Nice.
