As usual, he says it better off the cuff than most people say it with a prepared statement and a teleprompter:
They represent an anger in our country that Barack Obama has caused…because he is a typical, cynical Chicago ward politician who runs for office and promises everything and then comes to office and disappoints. And so there anger is rooted, not in me or in Mitt Romney. There anger is rooted in the fact that they believed in this hope and change garbage that they were sold three years ago by this President. They believed in the fact that this President was going to be a post-partisan leader. They believed this President when he said he was going to be a transformational figure in our country. And so now they’re angry but they’re not mature enough to know they should be angry with themselves. So they’re going to be angry with me or governor Romney or some of you. What we should be focused on I think as a country is not being angry at them–they’ll work their problems out over time. What we should be angry about is the lack of leadership in this country.
