Obama: People Just Don't Understand What We're Doing

Apparently his hundreds of speeches trying to sell his failed policies just didn't convince the great unwashed what's good for them. Now as he moves forward, he won't change his radical policies. He'll just try and repackage them so the stupid people "understand" what he's doing.
After a suffering a “shellacking” in the midterm elections, President Obama acknowledges what many have seen as his chief weakness – failing to sell the importance of several legislative milestones to the American people.

“I think that’s a fair argument. I think that, over the course of two years we were so busy and so focused on getting a bunch of stuff done that, we stopped paying attention to the fact that leadership isn’t just legislation. That it’s a matter of persuading people. And giving them confidence and bringing them together. And setting a tone,” Mr. Obama told 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft in an exclusive interview set to air Sunday.

“Making an argument that people can understand,” Mr. Obama continued, “I think that we haven’t always been successful at that. And I take personal responsibility for that. And it’s something that I’ve got to examine carefully … as I go forward.”

His problem is everyone understands exactly what he's doing and we want no part of it.
