Obama: It Is All About Me - Scott Brown Won For the Same Reason I Won

Gary Bauer, Campaign for Working Families: Is He Serious? Barack Obama sat down with ABCs George Stephanopoulos for a one-on-one interview last night and promptly gave an analysis of the election results in Massachusetts that can only be described as bizarre. Here is the presidents view of why Scott Brown beat Obama's ally Martha Coakley: Here's my assessment of not just the vote in Massachusetts, but the mood around the country: the same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office. Yes, he really did say that. Really. Im not kidding. Seriously.

Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, many of the voters who swept Barack Obama into the White House did not show up in Massachusetts on Tuesday, just as they did not show up in Virginia or New Jersey last November. Minority voters, who supported Obama because they thought he was going to transform their lives, now suffer from historic high unemployment rates. College-age youth, who got caught up in the Obama mystique, are now swinging to conservative candidates who advocate lower taxes and more job creation. In November 2008, many voters liked Obama's Big Government message. Now, after one year of Obama's socialism, the public says it wants smaller government.

Here's a more accurate assessment: The mood around the country that helped our side win three big elections in recent months is the same thing that is going to send Harry Reid packing this November, and make Barack Obama a one-term president in 2012!

A Failure To Communicate? Obama also suggested that another contributing factor in losing the Senate seat held by Ted Kennedy was a failure to communicate on his part.  He can't seriously believe that. This administration is the most media obsessed outfit in history. It's so bad, he's been accused of narcissism and over-exposure. How many times has the president been featured on the cover of Time Magazine? Barack Obama has been more ubiquitous in the media than an American Idol winner. CBS News even ran the stats:
* Obama has made more than 400 public speeches or statements in his first 365 days 52 of them devoted to healthcare.
* He's held 42 press conferences, four in prime time. That's twice as many press conferences as George W. Bush held during his first year, and only one of Bush's was in prime time.
* Obama has given 158 interviews, far more than any of his predecessors in their first year.
* Obama has also conducted 23 town hall meetings.
* CBS also noted that in his first year Obama played golf four times as much as George W. Bush did in his first year, and attended nearly five times the number of fundraisers. Maybe Obama was too busy playing golf and raising campaign cash.

And isn't this the same Barack Obama whose tremendous rhetorical skills gave Chris Matthews a thrill up his leg? So how is it that he was unable to speak directly to the American people about their core values? I don't think he was. This is the same Barack Obama who wrote about himself, I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views.

It's not the messenger or the lack of a message. It was the content of the message. To paraphrase, It's the message, stupid. This administration is not representing the core values of the American people. It's not even close. There is a growing realization that hope and change was just a big liberal bait and switch. The voters are justifiably angry at being deceived and learning that the blank screen is really an empty suit.
