Democrats running for reelection know the most helpful thing Obama can do for them is to raise his approval ratings. But at this point he remains stuck in the low 40s. A new Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday found that 54 percent of registered voters say the administration is not competent to run the federal government
Given the state of the economy and the state of the world, Democrats have to wonder whether there is much Obama can do between now and November to boost those numbers.
The president is not welcome in some of the states with competitive Senate races this fall. What he can do is raise money and speak to the constituencies Democrats need to have energized in November. His advisers signaled earlier that he will be out of the White House as much as possible.
His public appearances, despite whatever comments he makes about his desire to work with Congress, have been designed to sharpen the partisan divisions, to belittle the Republicans, and to say to middle-class families and especially unmarried women that he’s with them and the Republicans aren’t.
The sad part is, he has told so many lies in the past that nobody believes him.
Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile!
