GOP Casting Midterms As Referendum On Obama Agenda

Republicans are casting Tuesday's midterm elections as a referendum on the economic policies of President Obama.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin tells "Fox News Sunday" that voters will send this message to the White House: "You blew it, President Obama."

The chairman of the Republicans Governors Association, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, says a strong turnout for Republican candidates will be seen as a repudiation of Mr. Obama's agenda.

The head of the Democratic National Committee, Tim Kaine, says the midterm elections offer voters a choice between problem-solving Democrats and Republicans bent on obstructing Mr. Obama.

Barbour and Kaine appeared Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press."

This program aired on October 31, 2010. The audio for this program is not available.
