The "Message" of the 2010 Election

In a phrase: wild frustration with the one party in America, the Property Party.

If it was a Republican congress under Bush that started creating unemployment and deficits before Obama took office, why is the explanation for Democrats losses being placed on them? In my view, the "message" of the election is not the culpability of the Democrats but rather (1) a frustration at what Nader calls a "one party country" in combination with (2) powerful GOP media machine (mischaracterizing and demonizing Democrats) which is funded and augmented by (3) corporate dollars. These factors represent, for me, the best explanation for the Democrats losses.
