CBS News: "There is this feeling, Particularly among people who are among your most ardent supporters, who feel a little disappointed that they think that you’ve lost your mojo. That you’ve lost your ability, that touch you had during the campaign, to inspire and lead. Everybody in Washington writes about a sort of aloofness that you have. How do you respond to that?" Kroft asked.
"You know, I think that over the course of two years we were so busy and so focused on getting a bunch of stuff done that we stopped paying attention to the fact that leadership isn’t just legislation. That it's a matter of persuading people. And giving them confidence and bringing them together. And setting a tone. And making an argument that people can understand. And I think that we haven’t always been successful at that," Obama replied.
"And I take personal responsibility for that. And it's something that I've got to examine carefully as I go forward. You know, now I will say that when it comes to some of my supporters, some of my Democratic supporters who express some frustration," the president added.
This is so typical of so many lefties. They absolutely refuse to blame their policies for failure. They would rather conclude the absurd (like we are all too stupid to understand) before they blame their policies.
The Shellacking was not a result of Obama failing to communicate his policies to the uneducated masses. The only failure in communication was Obama and the Democrats failing to hear the public shout “NO MAS”! For crying out loud, Obama was in our faces daily as he and the Democrats went about shoving ObamaCare down our throats. Obama was on every media imaginable, the only stone left unturned was the Vulcan Mind Meld (and that too would have been met with the same resounding NO)! Yet, here he is today trying to say he did not communicate his policies? Give me a break!
If Obama sticks to this script for the next two years and Nancy Pelosi becomes Minority Speaker, Shellacking 2.0 will be in the bag.
