I don't see how he could accept anything that the administration says on this topic as some reason to stop his filibuster because he should not be able to trust them if they are as awful as he seems to believe that they are.
Of course he may be merely performing a stunt.
You certainly have a good point. Nobody knows better than an Obama voter that you shouldn't believe a thing that he says.
Ehyeh asher ehyeh.
"You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream – the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order – or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism." -Ronald Reagan
