    President Barack Obama is complaining about aspects of the country’s electoral system that he says favored Republicans in 2016.
    “As long as Wyoming gets the same number of senators as California, there’s going to be some tilt towards Republicans when it comes to congressional races,” he explained, pointing out that most Democratic voters were “bunched up in big cities.”
    During a press conference in Peru, Obama grumbled that Republicans took advantage of “political gerrymandering” after winning wide majorities in that helped them lock in a majority in Congress.
    “More votes have been cast for Democratic congressional candidates than Republican,” Obama said. “And yet you end up having large Republican majorities.”
    He cited “bad luck” as the reason Republicans swept back into power in 2010, blaming the economic downturn he inherited from former president Bush and not having enough time for his policies to take root.
    Obama appeared to realize that he was complaining about the rules, admitting that the electoral system has “structural problems” that the Democratic party has to accept.
    “But, look, you can’t make excuses about the rules,” he said. “That’s the deal, and we got to do better.”

    Looks like the complainer and chief is at it again...Nothing he ever does is worthy of blame!!! He's complaining about gerrymandering , then the 2010 election was bad luck and the fact that his policies didn't have time to take root. He forgets to mention that there were several elections after that that he had his lunch handed to him. In eight years the Dems have lost 68 seats, a number of senate, many governor seats...think we have 34 now and tons of lowers representative  seats. Maybe it's time to look in the mirror and accept the fact that the policies of you and your comrades have been rejected!!! Hope you will ride off into the sunset and let a real leader show you what the country needs....guessing your ego won't allow that to happen, but we can always hope...    Eye Poke
