Double Take 'Toons November: The Shellacking

NPR Double Take revisits 2010 with a month-by-month year in review.

In November, the midterm elections were held. Republicans won control of the House. President Obama referred to his party's losses as a "shellacking," a term that caught on in popular culture. The president blamed the defeat on his own failure to communicate with the American people.

Mike Lester and Jen Sorensen offer their own returns on the midterms. Mike Lester/The Rome News-Tribune hide caption
