Well, you asked for it Mr. President

Every president inherits the consequences of policies and events from their predecessor. Most people know that and remember to cut a new president some slack. Continuing to blame a prior executive for problems 6 or 12 months beyond assuming office is juvenile and unseemly. It depletes any sense of goodwill afforded by the opposition.

Well, there you go again:

The same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office.

People are angry, and they're frustrated. Not just because of what's happened in the last year or two years, but what's happened over the last eight years.

Bush got re-elected in 2004, and, IIRC, Congress also became majority Republican.

So either Obama is ignorant of history well within memory, or dodgy at math.

Some people have been frustrated/angry for eight years, but those people are frustrated/angry with the Brown victory.

So Obama didn't say anything false, just misleading (so what else is new?).

I guess you never heard the political phrase '40 years of treason,' eh?
