From the Daily Caller:

Lemon spoke with liberal commentator Hilary Rosen and conservative columnist Reihan Salam about the president’s comments in an interview with The New Yorker published this week. “The issue,” Obama claimed during that interview, “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.”…

…Salam noted that it’s not just Republicans and Fox News. “There are a lot of people — including Democratic lawmakers, including women who served in the Obama administration — who say that this is a difficult guy to work with . . . I have a feeling that the president sometimes wants to sometimes shift blame to other people for some of his failures as a communicator, as someone who’s building coalitions.”
