Via Politico, the Smartest President Ever:
President Obama offered a lesson for Republicans that he learned the hard way during his first two years in office.
“Campaigning is different than governing,” Obama told reporters Sunday when asked about his meeting with GOP leaders later this week.
“They are flush with victory after a campaign of just saying ‘No,'” he added. “But I’m sure the American people did not vote for more gridlock.”
The president was speaking to reporters when he made a surprise visit to the press cabin of Air Force One during his flight home from Asia. It’s rare for Obama to come to the back of the plane to talk to reporters, but he’s done it twice in the last month.
Obama, who said in India that Republican gains in Congress will require him to make some “midcourse corrections,” blamed his mishandling of politics for his Democratic losses – not his policies.
He vowed to work to make sure his policies are better understood by Americans.
Suuuuuuuure, that’s the ticket! More speeches and Potemkin townhalls. That’s like the CEO of Ford saying:
“The Edsel isn’t selling, we need to increase the advertising budget.”
What a dumbass!
