Obama isn't getting backlash just from people who vote Republican. I'm sure people on his side have been peppering him with warnings about how this could hurt him with the minority voters he relies upon. Ergo the whispers of compromise. Church Health Care Mandate | White House | Softens Stance | The Daily Caller But what will the compromise look like? Of course his spin masters will be out in force to convince the Hispanic Catholic community and other Democrats of faith how wonderful he still is, but will it work? It was nice of Obama to hand Republicans this opening to possibly win back some of those who have been put off by hardline talk on illegal immigration. It's wonderful to see so many people standing up for the first amendment.
