President Obama has had his worst week since he entered politics, and despertly wants to stop the skid he and the Dems in Congress are having.

He is 0 for 3 in campagining for fellow Democrats in VA, NJ, and the most blue state in the US, MA.

Now he wants to reconstitute his 2008 election team to help Democrats keep control of both houses of Congress and several state Governorships this coming Nov.

Obama has asked his former campaign manager, David Plouffe, to oversee House, Senate and governor’s races to stave off a hemorrhage of seats in the fall. O is doing something no other POTUS has done in US history, taking over day to day operations of his party from the White House.

Plouffe, the man we have to thank for the Greek column theatrics at the DNC convention. Wonderful. Obama said last week that he "needs to talk to the people more clearly". So much for the idea that Obama might have learned anything from the recent elections... Is he on crack or what?

According to CBS, in the past year he gave 411 Speeches or remarks, 42 news conferences, 158 interviews and held 23 Town Hall meetings. Maybe if he’d spend less time in front of a camera and more time listening he’d know what people were thinking.

Now he's loosing the support of many democrats.

Last week, commenting on Obama's new banking proposals, Warren Buffet called it "idiotic". This was the man whose support in 2008 may very well have given Obama the presidency - independents who thought "If Buffet is on his side, he must be that bad for the economy".

But as it turns out he is exactly the accomplishment-less paper tiger I expected him to be as President.

It could very well be many Democrats are going to have to distance themselves from the President and his policies if they are going to make it in November.
Instead of helping he could very well be a liability for many during the election.

Sounds an awful lot like the last three presidents - what gives?? Translation: they all suck.

Or, it could be that the president will be trying to distance himself from certain Dems? Maybe he sees what some of us are seeing: There are those within our own party that are too far one way or the other for the liking of the American people. Just like with the GOP, there are different textures, sizes and styles.

Well Bush W, did very well in his first midterm. In 2002 Republicans expanded their majority in the House and regained control of the Senate.

Well I think the Dems the President does not like are the ones that are likely OK, like the blue dogs. Its his closer clan, the left half of the party like Reid are the ones in most danger. MSNBC this week listed the 10-most likely seat losses for the Dems in 2010, and Reid was #2.

And dismally in the second, and even worse in the hand off to the White House...so not seeing the logic behind singling him out as a somehow better example.

Then you do see the logic in Obama spending more in one year than Bush did in 8 years?

I believe I already stated in this thread that he sucks - again, what's your point?

Yes like maybe LISTENING to the people instead. May work wonders.

I suppose bringing he 2008 election team together, you would expect to see him on the camera even more. I think I will invest in teleprompter stocks.
