To be fair, he is the symbol of everything this year was about: lukewarm campaigning, economic malaise, lack of employment, anymosity towards the free market and employers, public sector growth, gun control, etc., etc., etc.

anymosity towards the free market and employers
Boy you are on-target there, and I missed it.
The economy did not recover and lingering bitterness from the Crash of '08 persisted. In hindsight, probably by Obama's design. Voters who were bitter and angry at bankers and capitalists were far more motivated than the rest of us, it seems. Since the country has not experienced this since the 1930's I think we got caught unprepared.
