It appears as though he's run out of excuses or others to blame:
President Barack Obama took partial responsibility for years of Democratic losses in governor's mansions and statehouses across the country during his presidency.
During an interview with the president on ABC's "This Week," host George Stephanopoulos pointed out that Democrats lost over 1,000 seats total in state and federal politics over the course of Obama's time in office.
"I take some responsibility on that," Obama said.
Of course, he still blamed Bush, the 2008 recession, and the "disenchantment" of many voters over the slow pace of economic recovery. As well, he continued, many were still out of work (and still are, with record numbers of people out of the labor force and on food stamps, but that's a subject for another time). So the losses weren't all the fault of our great statesman, but a little bit, maybe.
