  •  Lot of town halls this Summer. (0+ / 0-)

    He's telling Democrats how to respond while away.

    •  Lame duck president... (0+ / 0-)

      Gives a rare press conference in August on a Friday afternoon, just before heading to Martha's Vineyard for vacation. Speaks about his key legislative accomplishment, which incidentally still isn't very popular. And you're telling me that he's setting the tone for his fellow Democrats in the 2014 election?

      I think not.

      If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

      •  You explain it then. (0+ / 0-)

        What was the point of it? Remember Occams.

        •  That's an excellent question. (0+ / 0-)

          I have no idea. Perhaps he wanted to talk about the ACA when he knew no one was listening. Maybe he was sending the message to the very few people who were paying attention, without drawing a lot of attention.

          You've gotta admit that the press conference was given at the time when the least number of typical schmucks was likely to see it. Do you think it's possible that some other uncomfortable issue (NSA spying?) was the reason behind the scheduling.

          If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
