Blame it on the stupid economy

Obama blames election rout on economy

WASHINGTON—US President Barack Obama would not concede Wednesday that a Republican election rout marked a massive repudiation of his agenda, but did shoulder the blame for deep voter frustration over the economy.

Hours after Republicans captured the House of Representatives and slashed the Democratic majority in the Senate, a subdued Obama said in a White House news conference that voters were mostly preoccupied with the slow recovery.

"I think that there is no doubt that people's number one concern is the economy," Obama said. "And what they were expressing great frustration about is the fact that we haven't made enough progress on the economy."

After two years of "hope" and "change", the US economic recovery remained sluggish and unemployment is pegged at a stubborn 9.6 percent. The voter's discontent just materialized with stunning clarity.

Yes, the economy is to blame. And then of course -- someone's got to be blamed for the economy.

Don't blame it on the sunshine
Don't blame it on the moonlight
Don't blame it on the good times...

I doubt if the Obama camp is in any mood to dance.
The pro-life camp however, appears poised to rock and roll.
CatholicVote says virtually every so-called “pro-life” legislator that voted for Obamacare went down to defeat last night.

Blame it on the boogie
