I've often heard all variants of the messages above, though increasingly less as people in my agency understand that's not what they are supposed to say.

Mostly people just frown and say they don't agree but provide no reason why and make it very clear you should just shut up and stop rocking the boat.

Sometimes it pays to be persistent, sometimes that persistence is career limiting. Quite often those with the power to provide effective support to ideas are those with vested interests in not seeing it go ahead (usually because that was the work they put in place when they were in your position all those years ago).
