So the difference of a theoretical President Paul compromising and the actual President Obama compromising in an attempt to pass legislation is simply a matter of degree?
Obama compromised too much?
That's the problem, Obama wasn't compromising much at all. He was giving the GOP everything they asked for with almost nothing in exchange. Right now Obama is pushing for taxes to the rich yet again. Do you honestly think it will happen? In order to compromise effectively, the other side must give something back and that isn't happening much. That's why the debt ceiling deal with such a failure on Obama's record. Obamacare was passed with zero GOP support despite all the compromises made to it by Obama to achieve GOP votes. For example, the 222 waivers for big business giants to not have to carry Obamacare yet the rest of us including small businesses are screwed by it. That's the ideal example of Obama not working for our best interests.
