Obama's Budget Deficit Speech, April 13, 2011

I certainly agree that Obama intentionally lies in order to get votes.

But doesn't the orgy of adulation over today's speech demonstrate that he could play the media, including some of your coworkers at Salon, even more effectively (and garner even more support and votes, a la 2007-8) if he gives grand speeches, even while continuing on whatever policies his corporate masters dictate?

In other words, it seems he would be a better liar if he lied like he did today and in 2007-8. His pollsters surely know this. He scored the elusive 'independents' in 2008 by making grand speeches and loses them when he makes tepid ones. Why, then, has his presidency been replete with the latter when bland rhetoric loses independents?
