The Obama election campaign is in trouble. There is nothing in the way of achievements that can be pointed to. The signature piece of legislation, ObamaCare, is a disaster, politically and every other way. It is avoided in the campaign in a fashion reminiscent of the way that previous generations used to hide crazy aunts in the attic.
Holman W. Jenkins, Jr. describes the campaign problem that Obama confronts:
… Team Obama at least senses trouble and reportedly is looking for a positive message. But what message? Stay the course? What course? For and against gay marriage? For and against fossil fuels? More Solyndras? More trillion-dollar deficits? A recovery more halting and uncertain the longer Mr. Obama presides over it?
They have nothing, absolutely nothing, to run on. That is why the campaign, as explained in detail in Mr. Jenkins’ article, has become so dirty and desperate.
Despite his complete and utter failure, it is amazing that there is still the possibility (likelihood??) that Obama will be re-elected.
My God! What has happened to this country and the common sense of its citizens? That issue is a much bigger threat to the country than another four years of a Chicago thug.
