Behind the Curtain: Dems Frustration with O

With the chances of the former congressional seat of the disgraced Anthony "the dick" Weiner falling into Republican hands, speech after speech from Obama about jobs he never delivers and the way he is fast becoming a cartoon caricature of himself, democrats are nervous about his re-election chances and another possible hit on their congressional power. The NYT gives us a peek behind the curtain at what the powers that be are saying....... 

"Democrats are expressing growing alarm about President Obama’s re-election prospects and, in interviews, are openly acknowledging anxiety about the White House’s ability to strengthen the president’s standing over the next 14 months......"
"Elected officials and party leaders at all levels said their worries have intensified as the economy has displayed new signs of weakness. They said the likelihood of a highly competitive 2012 race is increasing as the Republican field, once dismissed by many Democrats as too inexperienced and conservative to pose a serious threat, has started narrowing to two leading candidates, Mitt Romney and Rick Perry, who have executive experience and messages built around job creation....." 
"And polling suggests that the president’s yearlong effort to reclaim the political center has so far yielded little in the way of additional support from the moderates and independents who tend to decide presidential elections......."

As for me, I plan on doing my part to insure Mr. Obama has as much time as he wants to play golf in the spring of 2014 as a private citizen and former President.
