In a CBS broadcast last night, President Obama attributed his low approval ratings to public unhappiness with Congress. He also said that he's "impacted," just like Congress, when people aren't happy with Washington.
This is a man whose self-regard is such that he reportedly once told an aide, "I think I'm a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I'll tell you right now that I'm a better political director than my political director."
Whom will he blame when he is booted out of office in November of next year? Bush, or the Tea Party?
