It has been overtly noted that Team Obama is getting nervous about some things.
The article states clearly that there is no economic message being articulated. Debbie “Cute Smile” Wasserman Schultz says that Dems own the economy, but so far they have tripled the debt and the deficit with no results. The only economic message being communicated by this White House is how people are going to suffer badly if rich people aren’t taxed more, and we do not have another stimulus package soon.
The article also mentions some fundraising concerns. I guess the bundlers have been laid off.
A couple other concerns that might be weighing heavily on the White House these days:
1. Obama announces a draw down of forces in Afghanistan and the Taliban wastes no time in doing what we all knew would happen the moment he announced it.
They attacked a hotel in Kabul in grand style to celebrate. And you can bet there will be more like it. As they do this, there will be enemy film crews splicing the film cuts and making it look like they are driving the U.S. forces out. The people who support and admire this enemy will see this as victory for their cause.
I am not necessarily opposed to cutting forces, I see things from both sides of the issue. One side is clear, the Afghan people do not appreciate what we have tried to do for them. So, why keep spending money we do not have and sacrificing more American lives for their safety and security? So…. if this is our decision, it should be done quietly, carefully, and not in a manner to score points politically.
Certainly, this decision has backfired and will be regretted over and over again, until the last troop comes home.
2. Another concern that Team Obama must have about now is the enormous amount of recreational time this President has taken over the course of his term.
This President lacks the commitment that is needed to lead this nation. Certainly he deserves a vacation like anyone else. But he has been the 9-5…. take weekends off, fly anywhere he wants whenever he wants…..all on the taxpayer’s dime, president. From the beginning, he flew Michelle and himself to NYC for a date night, has spent many days on the golf course when leadership was needed, and we all paid for it.
And as if this isn’t enough, he has the audacity to tell Congress that they should not take vacations until the debt ceiling issue is dealt with.
So, it is becoming more apparent that we are not the only ones who think Obama is in trouble. But I am sure it will get better. As the desperation in the Obama camp gets worse, look for more idiotic maneuvers that will cause deep and lasting damage to this nation over the next decade…… and beyond.
But more than anything, I think the staff at Obama HQ knows deep in the recesses of their hearts that they are working to re-elect a flake:
