Obama's position is, No negotiation. You cannot meet someone like that part-way.
That is why I scoff when I see that part of the poll. How can you disapprove of what someone is doing, but still want to give in to them so they’ll succeed at it?
It’s clear that these poll participants are not paying a lot of attention to the issues (big surprise there). Any compromise the GOP has put out there has been thrown back in their faces. Obama’s idea of compromise is to force his opponent’s surrender.
