Obama takes responsibility for voter frustration

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that voters frustrated by the pace of economic recovery dictated a Republican takeover of the House of Representatives in elections, adding, "As president I take responsibility" for a failure to restore job growth more quickly.
The president said he was eager to sit down with the leaders of both political parties "and figure out how we can move forward together."
"It won't be easy," he said, noting the two parties differ profoundly in some key areas.
He spoke at a White House news conference Wednesday, the day after Republicans captured control of the House and cut deeply into the Democratic majority in the Senate.
