My mealy-mouthed words carry weight

I am the president of the United States. My words carry weight.
Obama, during a meeting with Democrats in the White House, according to a close observer.
According to another close observer:
David Plouffe has taken over. Everything is about the reelect, where the President goes, what he does.
[David Plouffe is the manager of Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, who officially joined the White House staff in January 2011.]
Truthful words, spoken by well informed people. According to Elizabeth Drew. And we've been assured that we can believe her.
But it can't be true.
No mr. President, that is not possible. It's either your words that carry weight, or the words of David Plouffe coming out of your mouth.
I assume the last possibility. Because words from the outside, put in your mouth by someone, are so much more heavy than words coming from the inside.
By the way, speaking of Cut, Cap and Balance: who pays this Plouffe?
Do I understand well that the most important of all the President's men, whom the taxpayer has to pay for, is figuring out what we want to hear instead of figuring out what has to be done?
