SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - President Barack Obama is telling his supporters he understands their frustration over the compromises he's made with Republicans, and preparing them for more to come.

It's a timely warning given the upcoming vote on raising the debt ceiling and the ongoing debate over long-term deficit reduction, both issues Obama says can only be solved if Republicans and Democrats work together. But further compromises could hurt Obama's relationship with liberals who have grown tired of watching
him cede ground to the GOP on spending cuts and tax breaks for the
wealthy.

Obama is pitching both his case for re-election and his deficit reduction plan on a three-day trip to the West Coast. He'll attend a fundraiser in San Francisco Thursday morning before making stops
in Reno, Nev., and Los Angeles.
