It has nothing to do with his policies or personality, but rather his inability to convince you that conservatives are wrong. And so he cant get anything done because people wont allow Republicans in congress to go along with his policies. Because he hasnt been able to prove Rush or Fox wrong."The issue has been the inability of my message to penetrate the Republican base so that they feel persuaded that Iím not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, but Iím somebody who is interested in solving problems and is pretty practical, and that, actually, a lot of the things that weíve put in place worked better than people might think," Obama said.
"And as long as thereís that gap between perceptions of me within the average Republican primary voter and the reality, itís hard for folks like John Boehner to move too far in my direction."

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.
