Obama’s Weekly Address: Urging the House to Do ‘What’s Right’ for the Middle Class

One of Obama's problems in striking a deal with Republicans is that he attempts to invalidate their feelings and ignore their arguments.  Republicans don't think raising taxes on "the rich" benefits the middle class or the poor.  They think it does the opposite because it sucks capital out of businesses that would have used it to create jobs.

If Obama were really interested in striking a deal with Republicans rather than engaging in political posturing, he would frame an argument that at least addressed the issue that animates the Republican position rather than creating a straw man argument about Republican affection for the rich.
