"Give me an example of what I might do." Why, what else could he do? I mean, what could any reasonable person be expected to do that he hasn't already tried?

"This is a room full of smart folks!" Gee willikers, President Obama, we're nothing special. (Digs toe in carpet, looks down and blushes.) We could never hold a candle to you and your team of brilliant experts. If you're stumped, then by gosh, so are we!I think I'm going to be sick.
