"One of the wonderful things about democracy is that when the people are not happy it is their right, obligation and duty to express their unhappiness much to the regret sometimes of incumbents," the president said. "But that’s a good thing, that’s a healthy thing."

The president said the election results "also requires me to make some mid-course corrections and adjustments. And how those play themselves out over the next several months will be a matter of me being in discussions with the Republican Party, which is now going to be controlling the House of Representatives, and there are going to be areas where we disagree and hopefully there are going to be areas where we agree."
