“I think it’s too much to say that this was a repudiation of the Clintons,” Barbour told the Washington Examiner in an interview.
Nor was the outcome Tuesday necessarily about Americans embracing the Republican Party and giving the GOP a governing mandate, Barbour said, but about voters rejecting Obama and his administration wholesale.
“Most Republicans understand that yesterday’s election was a referendum on Obama and Obama’s failed policies and the bad results of those policies,” Barbour said.
“The American people have given us a chance to get back on the right track,” Barbour added. “This is not some great embrace of Republicanism. This is the American people giving us the ball back.”
