Dana Milbank comments on Obama’s June thus far:
It has been a Junius Horribilis for President Obama.
Job growth has stalled, the Democrats have been humiliated in Wisconsin, the attorney general is facing a contempt-of-Congress citation, talks with Pakistan have broken down, Bill Clinton is contradicting Obama, Mitt Romney is outraising him, Democrats and Republicans alike are complaining about a “cascade” of national-security leaks from his administration, and he is now on record as saying that the “private sector is doing fine.”
Not good for only half a month. What else might go wrong?
In my lifetime, even Lyndon Johnson did not have such a month and he was smart enough to read the tea leaves and decline to run for re-election. President Narcissus is not so intelligent.
As a result, this November is likely to represent a tidal wave of defeats for Dems. The Democrat Party, if not destroyed, will be damaged and weakened for years to come. An economic collapse (highly likely) under Romney may be their only salvation.
