Response to Blanks (Reply #25)

28. I agree. That's the political expedience I saw in lying.

Nevertheless, I think he has some room for being more overtly critical. He could put more emphasis on his positive plans, such as pushing the American Jobs Act, and then note (almost in passing) that the GOP blocked it.

Also, even if we agree that he must avoid whining, he doesn't have to bend over backward to sound bright and sunny about the prospects for bipartisan cooperation. His comments in the OP border on actively concealing the obstructionism.
