It's All Your Fault

Slate tries to figure out what's causing the political problems in this country and this is what they've come up with:
In trying to explain why our political paralysis seems to have gotten so much worse over the past year, analysts have rounded up a plausible collection of reasons including: President Obama's tactical missteps, the obstinacy of congressional Republicans, rising partisanship in Washington, the blustering idiocracy of the cable-news stations, and the Senate filibuster, which has devolved into a super-majority threshold for any important legislation. These are all large factors, to be sure, but that list neglects what may be the biggest culprit in our current predicament: the childishness, ignorance, and growing incoherence of the public at large.
What's missing from that list of possible culprit? They mention Obama's tactical missteps, but not his policies. Could it be the current uprising among voters is not because Obama has made tactical mistakes but because the people, when properly informed, don't like his policies?

It's not the people's fault.

Therefore 78% of the people in this country are childishness, ignorant, and incoherant.

They want to fire the people. We want to fire The Won. And all his assistants and enablers and PR people.
