How do you know that behind closed doors he hasn't pressed a stronger argument? With all due respect you don't.

Behind closed doors is the appropriate method for a subordinate to provide his or her's unvarnished opinion. He would never have the access to anyone above a janitor to help shape policy if he was bombastic. Should he even try, the focus is then on the personality conflict and the issue is lost in the noise. Followed quickly by his desire to retire to spend more time with the family.
