Welcome to Barack Obama's split-screen presidency. Obama has long sought refuge outside of Washington when his frustrations with the nation's capital reach a boiling point. To the White House, the take-away is that Washington and the Republican Party in particular is out of touch with the American people and failing to address their priorities. But to GOP leaders, Obama's activities in a midterm election year reinforce their view of a president more focused on soaring speeches and partisan politics than on working toward compromise solutions to the nation's problems. Each side has at least some evidence to support its case.
