Craig Ferguson on Obama’s Negotiating Skills

Democrats just seem to be missing the negotiating gene.

Yesterday someone told me about a Senator who was going to trade their vote away on the tax cut bill — which they deeply oppose — in exchange for the right to have a symbolic vote they knew they would lose.

Made me want to put my head through a window.

Or, at least invite them over for a game of poker.

Harry Reid spent what — $25 million dollars? Like three times as much money as anyone has ever spent in a Nevada political race, to beat a complete mutant.  Maybe the worst political candidate of all time.

Now everyone’s running around like it was the biggest Democratic victory of 2010.  And you know what’s worse?  It was.
