Our delusional president is taking the stance that since Democrats ran away from him forcing him to sit mostly on the ‘sidelines’ in this election, that he was not repudiated in last night’s election:
NY TIMES – Two things were clear long before the votes were counted on Tuesday night: President Obama would face a Congress with more Republicans for his final two years in office, and the results would be seen as a repudiation of his leadership.
But that was not the way Mr. Obama saw it. The electoral map was stacked against him, he argued, making Democrats underdogs from the start. And his own party kept him off the trail, meaning he never really got the chance to make his case. “You’re in the Final Four,” as one aide put it, “and you’re on the bench with a walking boot and you don’t get to play.”
The Republican capture of the Senate culminated a season of discontent for the president — and may yet open a period of even deeper frustration. Sagging in the polls and unwelcome in most competitive races across the country, Mr. Obama bristled as the last campaign that would influence his presidency played out while he sat largely on the sidelines. He privately complained that it should not be a judgment on him. “He doesn’t feel repudiated,” the aide said Tuesday night.
This is ridiculous. Obama himself said his policies were on the ballot just a few weeks ago:
I think the truth is Obama is simply trying to create a rationale for the media to use in support of him as he continues his dictator-like agenda while ignoring Congress as much as he possibly can. See, Obama is the obstructionist now if he doesn’t work with Congress so he’s giving the media a reason to make excuses for him so he can continue to use his pen and his phone or something.
