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

"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
