Harry Reid blames Obama

How bad has the finger pointing within Democratic circles gotten since their wipe out in the mid-term elections? So bad that even Harry Reid is blaming Obamacare for his party's misfortunes. In a New York Times article, Reid says:

In hindsight...it was easier to see how damaging the mismanaged rollout of the Affordable Care Act exchanges had been. “We never recovered from the rollout because the election became one that was directed toward the president. We couldn’t overcome that,” he said. Still, he added, “I should have seen it coming.”

Everyone with an ounce of sense saw it coming. But those who warned of trouble were shouted down as being either anti-poor or racist

But even if Sen. Reid had heeded the warnings, would he have done anything differently? Of course not. And the electoral rout his party suffered in November would still have happened.
