    Does that work the other way, or are you just a democrat?

    Don't e silly. ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN are all unbiased and objective news organizations with unbiased and objective reporters, anchors and editors. They never mischaracterize, have no agenda and always ask fair unbiased questions. Only FOX news is bad. Everyone knows that.

    Does that sound rational to you? Heck, does it sound professional? Isnt it possible that either Obama is simply wrong, or that people dont beleive him?

    He claims to be interested in solving problems, but rarely talks to congress or even his own appointees. He claims to be practical, but thinks govt micromanaging everyone is going to work? He thinks a lot of the things hes put into play worked better than people think. Ok, Ill give him that. Expectations are pretty low, so the fact that there was a Obamacare website at all is probably better than expected. I seem to recall Obama joking about shovel ready not being so shovel ready after all. GUess thats his idea of working better than expected?

    As Ive said many times before, if Obama would simply get to work, instead of giving interviews, campaigning, and blaming everyone but himself for the poor performance of govt, maybe something would get done. He works a half a mile from Congress. Walk down the street and say hi.
    I compare this to Chris Christie and his minions blaming bridge-gate on MSNBC. It's politicians trying to convince you to pay no attention to the man behind the curtain - look a shiny box!

    The funny thing is that there are posters on this board who will tell you the exact opposite in all seriousness.

    Does seem to be a pattern. Am thinking a little humility/concession would benefit him (Obama).

    Dunno. Maybe he will surprise us at the SOTU speech....

    Now everybody knows that after Obama told them to think that.

    I am willing to bet he will blame his enemies for what has happened in the past year, even though a President shouldn't have any enemies, politically that is.

    And you'd be wrong. Shockingly enough.

    Yakima Herald Republic | Obama accepts

    Obama underscored the administration’s unhappiness with the problems so far: “There’s no excuse for it,” he said during a Boston speech to promote his signature domestic policy achievement. “And I take full responsibility for making sure it gets fixed ASAP.”
    Obama: I bear ‘full responsibility for everything’ – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

    "I think that, you know, as president I bear responsibility for everything, to some degree," he said on CBS' "60 Minutes."

    “Secretary Clinton has done an extraordinary job but she works for me,” he said. “I’m the president and I’m always responsible.
    ...
    “I am ultimately responsible, these are my folks, I’m the one who has to greet the coffins when they come home,” he said.
    Obama Accepts Blame for AIG Bonuses - WSJ.com

    "Washington is all in a tizzy and everybody is pointing fingers at each other and saying it's their fault, the Democrats' fault, the Republicans' fault," he said at a town hall meeting Wednesday. "Listen, I'll take responsibility. I'm the President."

    Your comparison is off. I see Democrats on Fox News too. But the President is much different than a random Congress person or even a governor. And when you have a cable news network devoted to mis-characterizing the President, they make their money from it, it's hard to trust them to A) Ask fair interview questions and B) Not edit the tape to fit their agenda.
    Romney isnt President or complaining about the media caricature of him. I dont remember Bush publicly complaining either. Just the opposite, everyone has praised Bush for his professionalism in light of the constant attacks on him since Obama took office. If Obama would just shut up, we wouldnt have to call him out on what he says.
