Introspecitve Obama: I Didn't Communicate: "Sit In the Back, Tea Party Racists" Clearly Enough

From Michele Malkin:

Introspective Obama: I didn’t communicate “sit in the back seat, Tea Party racists” clearly enough


By Michelle Malkin • November 5, 2010 11:31 AM This is exactly why I said to take his olive branch and shove it.



Three days after the shellacking that shook America, President Obama’s idea of “taking responsibility” is to blame voters for not understanding his message.



See, it’s not that he didn’t get it.



It’s that we didn’t get it.



And off to Asia he goes…



Via 60 Minutes:



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.



“Making an argument that people can understand,” Mr. Obama continued, “I think that we haven’t always been successful at that. And I take personal responsibility for that. And it’s something that I’ve got to examine carefully … as I go forward.”
