Impediment to Obama’s re-election: his record
From the Hill:
Two-thirds of likely voters say the weak economy is Washington’s fault, and more blame President Obama than anybody else, according to a new poll for The Hill.
It found that 66 percent believe paltry job growth and slow economic recovery is the result of bad policy. Thirty-four percent say Obama is the most to blame, followed by 23 percent who say Congress is the culprit. Twenty percent point the finger at Wall Street, and 18 percent cite former President George W. Bush.
The bad news for the President is (despite his best efforts to convince America otherwise) he isn’t running against Congress, Wall Street, or George W. Bush; he’s running on his record and against Mitt Romney.
Obama, with malice and forethought, willfully made himself the face of the American economy and (as with the Pottery Barn rule) since he broke it, he owns it. Pay up, sucka.
