8. Actually this is a very shrewd move on Obama's part

Announcing a desire to compromise is not necessarily a sign of weakness.

Obama has an ace up his sleeve that will trump any card the GOP could ever hope to play. If no compromise is reached, $55 million comes right out of the military industrial complex. Poof! It's gone. This is no small deal. It cuts right to the heart and soul of what fuels the GOP. While I never underestimate the stupidity of the GOP and their willingness to slit the throat of the American worker, I'm just not so sure they would be just as willing to slit their own throat in the process.
