‘Republicans Around the Country’ Like My Ideas, Obama Says

President Obama, asked about his low poll numbers and the poor prospects for his re-election, blamed Republican intransigence for the American people’s dissatisfaction. He also said rank-and-file Republicans “like the ideas that we put forward.”

“It is my job to put forward a vision of the country that benefits the vast majority of Americans,” Obama told CBS’ “60 Minutes” in an interview that aired Sunday. “If I can’t get Republicans to move, partly because they’ve made a political, strategic decision that says, ‘Anything Obama’s for, we’re against, because that’s our best chance of winning an election,’ I don’t think the American people would see that as a failure on my part.”
