    A lot of people see something from the administration and completely misunderstand it.

    Obama is subtle. He will happily say "Yes, we could do this. But of course, if we do, then we would also have to do that and the other", knowing full well that that and the other are completely unacceptable to the other side.

    But his liberal critics then jump on this and say "The administration has gone on record as being prepared to do this", which quickly morphs into "Obama intends to do this" and so to "Obama is a Republican shill corporate traitor sell-out."

    I've given up listening to people who misrepresent Obama's position in this way. - Where Pragmatic Progressives are now Regrouping - Clear thinking liberals welcome
