Obama said he’d prefer that Republicans have a different attitude !!
(CNSNews.com, December 12, 2011) - President Obama, asked about his low poll numbers and the poor prospects for his re-election, blamed Republican intransigence for the American people's dissatisfaction. He also said rank-and-file Republicans "like the ideas that we put forward." ( )
"It is my job to put forward a vision of the country that benefits the vast majority of Americans," Obama told CBS' "60 Minutes" in an interview that aired Sunday. "If I can't get Republicans to move, partly because they've made a political, strategic decision that says, 'Anything Obama's for, we're against, because that's our best chance of winning an election,' I don't think the American people would see that as a failure on my part."

"blamed Republican intransigence for the American people's dissatisfaction"
Kroft noted that 75 percent of Americans think the country is on the wrong track, while 54 percent say Obama doesn't share their priorities.
“And we didn't get into these problems overnight. We're not going to get out of them overnight."...
For the low, low price of $2,500, one lucky bidder and five friends are set to have dinner cooked for them by Weather Underground leaders Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. The auction was hosted by the Illinois Humanities Council (IHC), a non-profit founded — and still funded — by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Bidders were invited to “[e]njoy an unforgettable and scintillating dinner for a party of six cooked by veteran activists and educators Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.
It must be a "slow-talk'n" auction ! ... Oh, cash only please !
“Fascinating conversation over a meal,” the auction promised, “is the agenda for this special evening.”
The National Endowment for the Humanities, the Powerline blog reports, “provides almost all the funding for the IHC.”
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, both Ayers and Dohrn were leaders of the communist, terrorist organization Weather Underground — a splinter group from the radical Students for a Democratic Society. The Weather Underground conducted a terrorist bombing campaign with the goal of ending the U.S. war against communist Vietnam. Attack targets included the U.S. Capitol, the Pentagon and at least one police station. The two married while on the run from the FBI in the early ’70s.
Ayers came into the national spotlight again recently when it was alleged that he had a close relationship with then-presidential candidate Barack Obama. He and Obama sat together on the board of the Woods Fund.
“Dinner will be arranged,” the website continued, “on a mutually agreed upon date before September 30, 2012. All sales are final.”

On 60 Minutes Sunday, Barack Obama told Steve Kroft fixing America’s economy was going to take more than one term, more than his second term if he is re-elected — in fact, it is “probably going to take more than one president.”
In essence, the president of hope and change told the American people their country is wrecked until at least 2017.
I guess his own "wreckord" speaks for itself .... yes?
