No Cuts. Revenue Only. That should be Obama's starting position. From WIKI HOW (to negotiate):

"Open extreme.

Open at your maximum sustainable position (the most you can logically argue for). Ask for what you want, and then some. When starting off a negotiation, don't be scared to make an outrageous request. You never know--you might get it! And what's the worst that could happen?

They might think you're vain, or delusional; but they'll also know you have guts, and you value yourself, your time, and your money. Are you worried about insulting them, especially if making a very low offer to buy something? Remember that this is business, and if they don't like your offer, they can always counter-offer. Just be bold. If your opening offer is too close to your breakpoint, then you will not have enough bargaining range to concede to the other party as a way of giving satisfaction." http://www.wikihow.com/Negotiate


Somebody please - send the man to a class on negotiations!!!!

2. According to the R's, his 332 electoral votes gives him a mandate!

He can afford to negotiate from strength.

3. Throw a 90% cut to the military, abolish all

security contracts and do away with the Homeland Security department in there and you have a winning starting place.

4. Just fill you side up with things that the majority of America wants,

and you can't lose.

5. Maybe we should throw in some of the things they are really skeered of

like replacing The United States of America on our currency with The United Socialist States of America and exempting all Muslims from paying any taxes.

We should give them some of the same absurd they give to us all the time.
