    So last night on ABC, Obama blamed the election of Brown on the last 8 years....he said...and I paraphrase..
    'it is not just the last year or so, it was a response to the last 8 years'.

    Furthermore...and I paraphrase again....

    'I have been so busy with healthcare, two wars and economic crisis, that I have not had the time to be in touch with the American people'....

    Really? A record amount of press conferences, interviews, late night shows, speeches.....

    What is reality putting aside his rhetoric...

    He had plenty of time to address the American People....but with a fillibuster proof majority, he had no interest in HEARING FROM the people.

    And when the people took the the streets to have their voices heard, he ridiculed them.

    When he says he hasn't been in touch, he means he doesn't give a shit what they think.

    It gets old when Viagra just makes it stop tangling in the shoe laces.

    At least he admitted that last year had something to do with it ;) Since last year was part of the last 8 years

    Yeah the BUSH/CHENEY thing is long gone, they have been out for over a year now....the dems have been in control of congress since 2006 and the presidency since 2009. Its their show at the moment.

    I have had enough of Obama talking at me. I would really, really like him to STFU and do the damned job we pay him to do. Govern the Republic. In order to effectively do that, he needs to listen to 'we, the People'... not his fucking special interest groups. There is only one Special Interest group he need concern himself with - and that is us.

    Did you expect for him to say anything less? Everything is Bush's fault - even Obama's failing popularity numbers.

    It goes beyond 8 years. It goes back to Clinton, Whitewater, Gingrich, Lewinsky, Bush...

    Congress is at war with itself. There is no longer a middle ground with Congress. A win-win solution is discarded because it allows the other side to win also. It is more important that your party wins and saves face than to do what is right for the people.

    Congress, as it exists now does not work

    Well said! Personally I think to some degree the Presidents advisers are failing him miserably, he needs to start cleaning house and getting some people around him that are not rabid ideologues and will give the straight scoop as to what is really going on in the country.

    That won't happen any time soon, Obama is so far left he can not see the middle, much less appoint someone from it. This was well known before he got elected but the press ignored it cause he was the "first" black man running successfully for President. The press failed miserably the last 2 years.

    I seriously doubt Obama wakes up.
