He has no experience working across the aisle. He is annoyed at the idea he has to earn support for any of his ideas. He thinks he just needs to lay it out there and if you don't like what he says, you're stupid. The culture of give and take in Washington seems to have compeltely baffled him - that or he's so arrogant he's annoyed at the idea that he should need to get consensus from anyone on anything at all.
How has Republican showed any willingness to compromise. Righties forget that Obamacare was a conservative idea.
Conservatives get their way and then complain that no one compromises with them. It's laughable.
Obama was willing to cut 10 spending dollars for every ONE dollar added in revenue, and the Republicans didn't go for it.
Many conservatives are reasonable, the ones in Congress are not.
