Obama would rather continue to campaign than govern

Washington Post:

Obama launches full-fledged PR effort on ‘cliff’

Campaign-style events that include talks to small-business owners will try to increase pressure on Congress to make a deal before automatic cuts.
This seems to be a recognition that Obama is incompetent as an executive and believes that making a speech is the same as governing.  This also happened to be his failed strategy during past legislative battles.  It led to the Republican landslide in 2010 and to his failure to deal with the debt crisis in 2012.

It is unlikely that anything good can come form this trip.  Voters want actions and not speeches.  But Obama has not ability to negotiate a compromise with anyone who has a fundamental disagreement with him.  In fact, he barely has the ability to compromise with Pelosi and Reid.
