Good news! President ‘my policies are on the ballot’ doesn’t feel repudiated by election results

Last night, on the national level, Democrats lost control of the Senate (new product idea: a car that runs solely on Harry Reid’s dejection) and the Republicans gained House seats to a level not seen in at least 60 years. But remember, none of that was a statement about President Obama’s performance or policies:

The Republican capture of the Senate culminated a season of discontent for the president — and may yet open a period of even deeper frustration. Sagging in the polls and unwelcome in most competitive races across the country, Mr. Obama bristled as the last campaign that would influence his presidency played out while he sat largely on the sidelines. He privately complained that it should not be a judgment on him. “He doesn’t feel repudiated,” the aide said Tuesday night.

If Obama doesn’t feel repudiated by the election results yesterday, I guess he was lying when he said this:

I actually think Obama doesn’t believe he wasn’t repudiated yesterday. In his mind voters didn’t reject his policies as much as they gave him a mandate to go nuts with the executive orders.
