Under the heading on DrudgeReport: "Obama tells 60 Minutes: It's not policies that were rejected, it was failed communication skills"
NEW YORK (CBS) — After a suffering a “shellacking” in the midterm elections, President Obama acknowledges what many have seen as his chief weakness – failing to sell the importance of several legislative milestones to the American people.
“I think that’s a fair argument. 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,” Mr. Obama told 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft in an exclusive interview set to air Sunday.
In his eyes they (the dems) know best and we are just too stupid to understand. Anyone surprised by this? I'm not!
I absolutely agree with him. I think most people don't have a clue what actually HAS been accomplished these past 2 years.

I wouldn't place money on that bet were I Obama. It absolutely IS his policies that I disagree with. They did too much communicating about how we would like what they were serving once they passed it. Nobody bothered with explaining what it was that they were serving up. His campaign slogan was 'Change You Can Believe In' and it should have been 'Change We Refuse To Define'.
I wouldn't expect anything less from him. It's hard to say that your whole agenda is failing and dragging the country down with it. Besides, he can't admit he was wrong yet, he still has to get things through in the Lame Duck.
