President Obama’s recent negotiations with Republican leaders puts us in mind of Neville Chamberlain who, in 1938, returned from Munich assuring us he had established “peace in our time.”   We have to hope we have more time before the collapse than Chamberlain and the British did.  The article by Bob Burnett has more about negotiating with vipers.
