    that when he falsely takes blame for the bad political tone, they will disagree and say it's their fault, thus the American people will see who the real bad guys are and give Dems back the House in 2012!!!

    But serious, what a neophyte. Did Obama invent a death panel meme to attack the current system of for-profit insurance that the repugs want to maintain (and did with Obama's help)?. Obama didn't yell "you lie" to a repug speaker. Obama jumped the shark with this stupid statement. We are so screwed!!

      Since the elections I just see it more and more every day.

      Obama Blames Himself for Tone in Washington

      How about ...

      Abused wife blames herself for husband's violent behavior.

      Says she will redouble her efforts and try harder in the future to work with him and not neglect the things he expects her to do:  clean the house right, prepare meals perfectly, agree with everything he says ...

      The problem is, Obama is an "abused spouse in denial" Democrat who -- just like real abused spouses in denial -- push away and get angry at the people who are really the most supportive of them ... who encourage them to be strong and fight for their rights and dignity and self-respect, and want them to quit sabotaging themselves and be successful.

        It is beginning to seem that is is some serious flaw in Obama's character/psychology that prevents him from furthering his own or his constituent base's cause.

        It's either that, or he was a fraud to begin with and is a tool of all the forces he told us he was going to oppose.  Maybe he sees his job is to protect the banks, insurance companies, big oil and the wealthy form us dirty effin' hippies.

        I'm not sure which is worse.

          I think there really is some abuse-victim-like flaw in his psychology.

          If he was only a fraud and tool, then he would find other ways of rationalizing that behavior.  But he always goes the pathetic self-flagellating, "trying harder to work with them" abuse-victim route in the end.  

          It's like he can't help himself.
