No shit he feels he's responsible. There's a nation of 300 million who believe that one guy in a yuppie duplex in DC controls the planet. Things go to hell (before, during and after his tenancy) and he's gonna feel responsible...'cos that's the deal he spent a billion to buy into. Do I feel he's responsible? Nuh-uh. Do I feel sympathy? Nuh-uh. He wants to pretend he's running the world, let him take the shit with the champagne.
