WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama says Washington "feels as broken as it did four years ago," when he took office.
He's most frustrated by the inability "to change the atmosphere" in the capital "to reflect the decency and common sense of ordinary people" who want leaders to solve problems.
He adds "there's enough blame to go around for that."
Obama tells CBS' "Sunday Morning" that there's no doubt that he underestimated how much "politics trump problem-solving."

Actually, it’s far more broken.
And there’s no one to blame but yourself.
“I just haven’t been up to the job. I didn’t understand it. I failed to find out how to succeed. I’ve been a disappointment to myself and others.”
Obama is 'The DebtMaker'.
The country is falling apart and the Media is focusing on Obama’s cooking and pool-playing skills.
-—— “to change the atmosphere” ——
Only in the warped liberal minds does inability “to change the atmosphere” means pubbies must compromise....
As a long time American, that sentence makes me puke. I want "leaders" to get the Fluke out of my life and stay the Fluke out of my life.
poorly veiled code-speak for...
That's because it's "bush's fault" and they don't want to make the story about Bush.
Wrong. It is much more broken now that we have a CB4 DMX Ne-Yo douche bag posing as prez-e-dent.
This simple p.o.s. Ubama doesn’t get it and never will.
One party wants only to confiscate as much as possible from working, productive taxpayers in order to use that money to buy the votes of its base of bums, deadbeats, losers, and parasites, while the other party wants only to “buy the votes” of working, productive taxpayers by protecting them from that confiscation. (I know which kind of “vote buying” I prefer.)
Yin and yang.
There is no “changing” it.
Ubama the simpleton must go.
WOW! It’s not very often someone openly admits to being so naive.
Obama continues to blame everyone but himself.
When people stop looking to DC as the cure-all for their problems, DC can be fixed. Until then, it is the biggest problem we have, and it will stay broke.
Politics going on in D.C.? Who knew...
So he took a broken thing, jumped up and down on it, poured battery acid on it, kicked it in the testicles, buried it under a failed cesspool and is pole-axed by the notion that it didn't heal.
And it's still Bush's fault.
Nobody can “work together” (which includes “compromise”) with a liar. you only wind up keeping (or stuck with) your compromises while the other guy won’t keep his end of the deal (”no abortion funding” “no tax increases” “you can keep your doctor” etc).
- B. H. Obama
“Ordinary People” are split in two warring camps. One believes that an emperor should make up laws as he goes and overrule the legislative and judicial branches; believes in unlimited free abortion on demand through the ninth trimester; believes in government stealing all the wealth of the nation to squander; believes people are entitled to layabout all their lives in government-provided luxury without working; and believes that we should all live in caves and eat berries and twigs.
The other half believes in God, Constitutional law, freedom, private property, individualism and a strong work ethic.
The two camps will NEVER come together in compromise. One group is continually shafted by the other and has about had enough.
Oblamo is a total idiot.
What a liar! He pours lighter fluid on a hot flame and has the balls to complain? LMFAO!!!
It’s hard to clean up Washinton when you bring
all the filth and corruption of Chicago with you.
OT: How can he do this? Isn’t this illegal??
When you start your term by excluding the other party from negotiations and you spout phrases like “ I won” what did you expect?
You broke it, and a conservative supermajority will fix it come November.
So I guess what he is really saying is that he did not know what the f--- he was talking about when he said that he had all the answers four years ago.
“I found the perfect job for Obama after he gets the boot”
The star of “Bang A Celebrity!” Tuesdays at Man’s Country, in Chicago?
Hey who was it that WON last time??? It is his DC.
Hey who was it that WON last time??? It is his DC.
Neither the man NOR any of his administration, or party for that matter, would know decency Or common sense if they were to jump at them and bite their faces off!

Life is so tough for would-be dictators.
OT: How can he do this? Isnt this illegal??
That’s what I want to know ! Campaign money off shore ! 3 Socialist countries, one Communist Country !
This is like Hitler saying in the middle of WWII: “I’m just so frustrated that I wasn’t able to change the war-like atmosphere in Europe”
Seriously, is there any limit to the audacious bullsh!t of the this guy? He campaigned on his amazing (mythical) ability to bring everyone together, to change the tone, to bridge differences...and he was the most combative, arrogant, unyielding, contentious, divisive, lying, deceitful, balkanizing, thuggish, race-baiting, pompous ass to occupy the office in my lifetime. I just don’t know what to do if, G-d help us, he is re-elected. I don’t mean anything criminal or illegal or violent. I just mean, where can I go to hide from listening to this crap anymore?
on the sweater.
That’s insulting to Mickey and Homer.
Really? Do we really need to stoop that low? One not need to pull racist crap. We need to get people listent to us, not turn away due to stupid crap like you just did.
“Seriously, is there any limit to the audacious bullsh!t of the this guy?”
The strangest thing with his whining is that he got much of what he wanted; is he trying to distance himself from his own doings?
I think he is more upset that the “utopia” he thought would emerge turned out to be pure fantasy, and as the costs of his pipe dreams continue to sink the economy he is realizing that he will face the wrath of the voters for it (regardless of the outcome of the election). He is obviously upset that he has to face re-election, and is despised by a large number of people; he probably cries when people tell him what Rush says about him.
Haha..Lighten up I was playing into the stereotype.
Anyhow,if I stooped as low as I could it wouldn’t be half as low as our race/class/sex/religeous devisionist prezbo.
Walmart Greeter would be another safe job Obama could do. Well, as long as he didn’t start arguments with the customers or accuse them of perceived injustices without any actual proof.
Anyhow, better to be a “honkie” than a crazed donkey. :)
Romney will probably steal that as his campaign slogan.
