Obama Takes Responsibility For Lack of Progress on Economy

November 3, 2010

President Obama, somber and chastened in defeat, today pledged to listen to what voters were saying when they voted Democrats out of control of the House and statehouses across the country.

“Yesterday’s vote confirmed what I’ve heard from folks all across America,” he said in an opening statement at a post-election news conference in the East Room. “People are frustrated. They’re deeply frustrated with the pace of our economic recovery.”

He claimed to have made “progress” in ending the recession. But he acknowledged, “Too many Americans haven’t felt that progress yet and they told us that yesterday. And as president, I take responsibility for that.”

 

He added, “What yesterday also told us is that no one party will be able to dictate where we go from here.”

But he pledged to work with the newly triumphant Republicans.
