Obama: The Public Is Discontented With Me Because They're So Goshdarn Mad At Congress

The standard Obama line -- the standard Democratic line, for 30 years running -- is that any disapproval of their policies, and the disastrous results thereof, is actually due to confusion on the part of the public. If the Democrats are guilty of anything, it is only of failing to explain their policies with sufficient simplicity for a cretinous mouth-breathing knuckle-dragging Nation of Imbeciles to comprehend.

Obama takes that to the next level, and, with the patience of a particularly even-tempered saint, now explains the United States of Morons can't tell "President Obama" from "the Republican held House of Representatives."

President Barack Obama says his low approval rating is a reflection of public unhappiness with Congress.

Obama tells CBS in an interview broadcast Sunday that he's "impacted," just like Congress, when people aren't happy with Washington.

He says he understands that his arguments that the country would have been worse off if he hadn't taken certain actions don't resonate with the millions of unemployed people.

He doesn't seem to understand himself that the Republicans have served as a check on Democratic power for only six months -- and the current economic conditions are the result of the two years prior, when Democrats held all branches of government with large majorities.

I just realized something clever.

Obama tells the public to wait patiently, because his Policy Magic will take three or four or, who knows, six years to finally kick in and start having a positive impact on the economy.

On the other hand, he's also trying to sell the case that the very meager Republican policy gains kicked in almost immediately and have caused the plunge back to recession.

Obama's medicine seems to be of the mid-to-long-term variety, whereas Republican poison takes effect quickly, with the results immediately evident in the body public.
