USA Today columnist Kirsten Powers said that President Barack Obama is off to a rocky start in his dealings with Republican leaders in Congress because “there’s such a disconnect between what the White House thinks” and everyone else on Friday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel.
“It doesn’t seem to be starting off too well,” Powers remarked on the meeting between Congressional leaders and the president. “And a lot of this is because I think there’s such a disconnect between what the White House thinks is going on and what everybody else thinks is going on. Meaning, the world pretty much recognizes that this was a repudiation of Obama and the White House and the White House believes that it was not, and that it had nothing to do with Obama, and that it’s completely the fault of the Democrats who were running and they don’t feel any obligation to really come together and do ‘kumbaya.’”
