So has anyone read "Double Down" ? I have not but I did listen to an interview with the writers of Double Down. They mentioned how the current president seemed to have problems with negotiations.
Let me see what was the exact comment they made
Now I am not sure what you think or believe but the results of the presidency would point out that the president is poor at negotiating with men and women who do not share his ideology.

Is there a link or post that you may direct us to, to confirm this?

"....but the results of the presidency would point out that the president is poor at negotiating with men and women who do not share his ideology."

It certainly looks that way to me.


No President in my memory or research has ever been so "non-negotiable" as Obama - even those who were DESPISED by their political opposition (i.e., Abraham Lincoln).

All understood that the constitutional process REQUIRES compromise and negotiation. But it does appear that he's been changing his ways recently:


(It may also be dawning on him that if the Senate goes the way of the GOP this November, he will HAVE to negotiate if he wants to get ANYTHING done in 2015 and 2016.)
