That's fine if it's your definition of balance. That doesn't mean I have to adopt it. If Obama meant 1:1 during the campaign, it was kind of misleading (given the previous attempts to reach a compromise with congressional Republicans), but it's at least a plausible argument.
Of course, Republicans aren't obligated to sign on to whatever it is that he meant. He should be held to his campaign statements not the GOP.
