12. Well Obama, you gave it your best shot.
and you failed. I hope you now know you have to play hardball with this scum.
Working with the opposition, especially when it comes to what the center left wants, is impossible.
The right is militant. There is no getting around them, you must punch through them.
The same thing happens here in Canada. Steve Harper runs roughshod over the majority opposition constantly. You have to stand your ground and try to peel off a few moderates as well as rally the public to your side.

Obama should still take a moderate course, but there will be no way to compromise with extremists.
