    Pundits are always complaining about "how Washington works," i.e. the influence of special interests, etc.  And politicians frequently boast that they are going to "change the way Washington works."  So, President Obama frequently chooses to mobilize the voices of the people (e.g. the Newtown families) instead of using the old-fashioned back-slapping, glad-handing that everyone claims to hate in Washington.  And then he gets criticized for it.  Hypocracy at its finest!
