post-election press conference is that he thinks he's already been trying to compromise with Republicans, that getting ObamaCare passed was messy but the ends justify the means, and that he's going to continue to pursue Cap and Trade, either with official legislation or without it. The whole problem and the reason he got smacked last night is because the economy sucks and that's Bush's fault. Americans just don't understand.
There were way too many car and ditch metaphors and talk of a Slurpee Summit but in the end, he just doesn't understand what Americans are so angry about.
He complained about being "in a bubble" and out of touch in the White House and vows to get out more. Some golf, maybe. Or a $200 million a day trip to India (when a teleconference would suffice.)
I don't see any change on his part on the horizon.
