After 'shellacking,' Obama laments disconnect with voters




President vows to work with GOP this time, but stands firm on health care, tax cuts


He called the election a Democratic "shellacking" and lamented that "we lost track of the ways we connected with the folks who got us here in the first place."

"Some election nights are more fun than others," he said.

Obama said Tuesday's results confirmed what he's heard from voters across the country: People are frustrated. He said the lesson of election was that he hasn't made enough progress in creating jobs.

After two years with fellow Democrats leading Congress, Obama now must deal for the rest of his term with the jarring reality of Republican control of the House, a diminished Democratic majority in the Senate and a new flock of lawmakers sworn to downsize government at every chance.

"I've got to do a better job," he said.




RESIGN!

The Year in Review: Obama's shellacking

Isolated by the audacity of voters



By Rupert Cornwell
UK Independent


The Democratic debacle had several causes. The party's Congressional leadership was seen as too liberal and out-of-touch with ordinary citizens. An instinctive hankering of voters for divided government also played a part, as did deepening disgust at the ever-worsening partisanship on Capitol Hill, and the failure of Congress to deal with the country's problems.

The mood, so evident in the surge of the Tea Party movement, was directed at incumbents of every hue and as the party with most incumbents, the Democrats had most to lose. But mid-term elections are also a referendum on the president himself, and 2010 was no exception.

In their desperation to be rid of Bush, Americans took a colossal political punt. In 2008 they entrusted the White House to a man with an amazing life story, whose talents were undoubted, but whose public record consisted of little more than a single speech: the stunning keynote address at the 2004 Democratic convention in Boston that launched Obama, then a virtually unknown state legislator from Illinois, to national fame.

John F Kennedy with whom Obama is so often compared was a gnarled veteran by comparison when he was elected in 1960, after six years in the House followed by eight as a Senator. In the House however the Republicans gained an astounding 63 seats to win a majority, in the biggest swing since Second World War.


In the run-up to the November "shellacking", Obama managed to disappoint both his liberal base and the independents he once captivated, but who defected in droves to the Republicans in the midterm vote.

Liberals were upset by Obama's speedy abandonment of a public insurance option in the healthcare battle, by the troop surge in Afghanistan, and his failure to close Guantanamo Bay. Independents resented his deference to the liberal Democratic majority in Congress, and his failure to deliver on one of his central campaign promises, that he would restore civility and bipartisanship to Washington. Some hope, hardened observers of Beltway politics will say.

But the fact both sides are unhappy underlines his failure to get his message across with every statistic now worsening.

Biden Golfed in Hours Preceding Hurricane

By Ed Henry
Published August 28, 2011


Delaware was pounded by Hurricane Irene on Saturday night, but Vice President Biden got in one last round of golf in his home state before the heavy stuff started coming down.

While driving a golf ball may not have been restricted, Markell decided to ban non-emergency driving of vehicles starting at 6 p.m. ET in Sussex County, along the coast. The same restrictions applied at 8 p.m. in Kent County and 10 p.m. in New Castle County.

Around the time that Biden was reported to be playing golf, President Obama visited the Federal Emergency Management Agency headquarters in Washington for a high-level briefing on preparations for the storm.

ROFLMAO!
