I’d Hate To See What It Looks Like When He’s Not Trying

Robert Gibbs must be getting paid an awful lot of money for his ability to say this with a straight face:

Q To follow, now that the Democratic senators have reached this compromise on the public option, does the President feel that he did everything he could to push specifically for a public option —

MR. GIBBS: Yes.

Q — especially since that was his preferred measure of choice and competition?

MR. GIBBS: Yes. And he’s continued to meet with senators in order to make progress. Absolutely.

Indeed, I can’t possibly imagine what more Obama could have done.  I mean, it’s not like the President Of The United States can get on TV to explain why a robust public option is essential to healthcare reform, or twist centrist arms in Congress, or demand a bill that has one and threaten to veto any bill that doesn’t.  Or, y’know, not act like he doesn’t particularly give a shit one way or the other.
