Re "Failure to compromise" (Page A1, Oct. 1): President Barack Obama's position is contrary to the majority of voters. Yet he blasts congressional Republicans for opposing Obamacare.
Both parties would seem responsible for any government shutdown.
Cleverly, Obama has set up the Republicans for blame for the expected rough start-up of Obamacare.
During the fray, Obama is looking almost presidential in the Syrian and Iranian matters, a bit of the tail wagging the dog?
