Obama ‘Frustrated’ Dems Didn’t Run on His ‘Great Record’ in Midterms

In an interview with National Public Radio, President Barack Obama sounded off on the defeat handed to his party on Election Day earlier this year and said Democrats may have fared better if they had ran on his “great record.”

“[I] think the circumstances will have changed, though,” Obama said. “I’m obviously frustrated with the results of the midterm election. I think we had a great record for members of Congress to run on, and I don’t think we — myself and the Democratic Party — made as good of a case as we should have. And, as a consequence, we had really low voter turnout and the results were bad.”
