    he had to couch things this way in order to be heard. When I first read this I thought--gee could a person at the table have made the video. It is a mind bending way to look at the comment and most probably not right but intriguing--yes.

      There's concern and evidence of cognitive dissonance, but he doesn't see himself as part of the problem and is putting adjusting his words so as to show deference to Mitt and give him room to respond instead of stating it in a way that might sound accusatory to Mitt.

      I think something that a lot of posters on internet boards, including this one, forget is that people tend to see themselves as doing the right thing and tend to blame others for the problems.
