Why Obama Can't Close a Deal

Newt Gingrich tells Businessweek why President Obama can't get a budget deal with Republicans.

Said Gingrich: "My sense is that Obama is a very bad negotiator. Obama doesn't listen. Clinton listened. Clinton understood the art of getting to a deal because he'd been Arkansas governor. He'd dealt with legislatures. He was used to talking it out, paying attention. Obama is a college professor. He gives a lecture and then he grades you on your ability to understand his lecture. There's no practical way that a Republican-Obama negotiation is going to work, because they want radically different things."
