    Of hearing this trope from the President.  It's a way of shifting responsibility from himself to us and therefore disavowing ownership of it.

    "We" just spent the better part of a year working our asses off to get him reelected.  When does our work end and the work we elected him to do begin?  As someone upthread mentioned, he didn't ask our help to cut SS or any other program The Very Serious People all agree should be cut.

    Mr President, I am 28, college educated, and am on the brink due to this failed economy.  It has gotten so bad I am even contemplating leaving this country so that my inability to find a job that pays the bills doesn't remain my inability to have adequate healthcare which I am in desperate need of.  You are the most powerful person on earth, how about a return to traditional roles?  I need YOUR help.
