In an eyebrow-raising Wednesday press conference, President Barack Obama appeared unapologetic to fellow Democrats for Tuesday’s historic midterm election losses — losses many in the president’s own party attribute directly to him.
“I’m having a great time!” Obama said with a smile during the press conference.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus issued a statement after Obama’s remarks blasting the president for failing to hear and understand the verdict rendered by voters.
“In word and tone he refused to take responsibility or even express humility,” said Priebus. “He seemed to suggest the only ideas he’s willing to listen to are his own, old, failed ones. That’s the same my-way-or-the-highway approach that the American people rejected.”
Priebus added, “Is he detached or in denial? As the president said, his policies were on the ballot. The American people rejected them. Period.”
