This is hilarious! Boehner et al come up with a plan that is just what Obama asks for, then Obama moves the goalposts, and says the pubbies are not cooperating!
And MSM reports it as though that’s what all Americans think, too!
Didn’t Boehner accept Pelosi’s plan (that she got from Obama) only to have it rejected by Obama?
The pubbies must say, tell us exactly what you want, or they’ll continue to be caught in this remove the football, change the goalposts game.
Anyone with some knowledge of negotiating knows that your ‘opponent’ needs to name his opening position up front (tho it may be an extreme position, it’s still an upper limit established.
Exactly. Boehner needs to articulate the specifics of what is going on and how Obama is moving the goalposts, etc Boehner’s comments are too general. This is a rare opportunity for Republicans to get media face time. Why not use it to educate the public instead of the usual Boehner-speak?
