|We have seen this so many times in the past four years that I certainly hope President Obama is not falling for it again. Republicans claim they're ready to talk, and maybe in private they offer compromises (like we're told John Boehner did over the debt ceiling in 2010). But in public they stand firm on their positions, stick to their rhetorical talking points and brush back whatever the president suggests as not enough. Eventually they meet somewhere around the president's 20-yard line. It's happening again, right now, in the fiscal cliff talks.|
