President Obama blames Rush Limbaugh, Fox News for GOP not supporting his agenda

President Obama is blaming his shaky relationship with Republicans in Congress on Rush Limbaugh, and the constant stream of bad press he receives from Fox News.

“The issue has been the inability of my message to penetrate the Republican base so that they feel persuaded that I’m not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh,” Obama said. “But I’m somebody who is interested in solving problems and is pretty practical, and that, actually, a lot of the things that we’ve put in place worked better than people might think.”

If the voters don’t trust him, Obama explained, then the Republican politicians they elected can’t compromise with him, because their constituents will consider it “a betrayal.”

“And as long as there’s that gap between perceptions of me within the average Republican primary voter and the reality, it’s hard for folks like John Boehner to move too far in my direction,” Obama added.
