    Is this word useage impolite?

    I am having a word debate on the usuage of the word blatant. Is this phrase below rude or not?

    "You lost your keys three times when they were in the same blatant place each time, so who knows it could very well be there."

    No, that's not natural. Use obvious.

    How could the referee fail to see such a blatant foul?
    He thinks he's being subtle, but his attempts to influence our boss be named to lead the team are quite blatant.
    He made a blatant pass at her, right in front of her boyfriend!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
