An important man in the organization I worked for used to say:"Do you want to be right, or do you want to get results".: To get results you have to negotiate and compromise. Each side has to state the areas you do not want to compromise on, and others that you can and want. Once you come to an agreement, you both support that.
Obama is in a situation that no matter what he does, people find fault. The Republicans gave in on voting for extending the unemploment benefits and to start negotiating the tax break for the rich in another 2 yrs. I wish we all could be supportive of something. The constant bickering makes this country vulnerable in the eyes of the rest of the world. It is easier to topple a nation with lots of inner strife. Let's put more energy in building up rather than breaking down.
