Spin cycle: An hour in a full-blown White House PR campaign

Washington (CNN) – The White House is putting on a brave face in the midst of a congressional revolt, led by its own party, against the president's tax-cut deal.
In the latest move by angry Democrats, House lawmakers are refusing to bring Obama's controversial tax bill to the floor. As some political observers saw all legislative hell breaking out, the White House continued to make painstaking efforts to paint a rosy picture.

As the news of the Democratic blockage broke on Capitol Hill, the spinning over the course of an hour at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. could make you dizzy.

    I guess now we know who the real president is–Pelosi. Obama is a very weak president; he can't even get his own party to back him. How sad for this country.

    It's going to be a long 2 years. When Republicans gained control, the shoved through their agenda as fast and hard as they could – no apologies or pretenses! Democrats had control and still couldn't deliver on their promises so what do you expect will be achieved in the next 2 years? I don't care how much the President spins it, voters feel like they wasted a lot of time, effort, and money. They aren't likely to do it again in 2012.
