I think it's rich that the 'Democratic backlash' against Obama is, in its entirety, Newark's mayor, Steve Rattner, and constant jerkass Harold Ford.

This could ruin Obama.

That book is apparently so bad, the only person who was willing to be used for the cover blurb was Dinesh D'Souza

Please allow me a hearty chuckle.

But keylock71! You don't understand! Three guys have said things vaguely critical of Obama! This is the end for him!

Surely, all of this could prove to be ephemeral and meaningless in the arc of a long presidential contest.

Yes, your whole article is meaningless... and stop calling me Shirley.

"Democratic backlash" That sounds grounded in reality to me.

The presidency is probably the most complex job imaginable: Economic, diplomatic, military, social.

Romney only talks about the Economy, and even then he only discusses tax cuts. Like a one-trick pony riding on top of a one-trick pony.

The only "blowback" he's getting on Bain is from a few limousine liberals who need Wall Street money for their campaigns.

He can't kill bin Laden, make sure people can afford healthcare, and be the first President to support civil rights for gay Americansevery week.

According to article Obama and Romney are in a "virtual tie". Not a real tie mind you. Not polling numbers that are equal. Not polling numbers that are equal if you round them to a percentage. Not polling numbers which could be equal if you consider the margin of error. Polling numbers which are virtually equal.

Translation: Obama is actually leading in the polls
 
2012-05-25 11:32:12 AM  
That's the unmistakable reality for Democrats since Obama officially launched his reelection campaign three weeks ago. Obama, not Mitt Romney, is the one with the muddled message - and the one who often comes across as baldly political. Obama, not Romney, is the one facing blowback from his own party on the central issue of the campaign so far - Romney's history with Bain Capital.

What universe is this guy observing?

Yeah, the consistent trend of double digit leads for President Obama not only with women, but in states that Romney "must win" sure must be the thing keeping the CnC up at night.

blowback being one negative comment later being retracted by a Mayor who strongly supports Obama.

Hey conservatives, I know you are in here

If you are down with the birthers, fox news, Limbaugh, all that crap

please kill yourselves

its real easy, just google it

Please note this is not for the true "small govt" conservatives but for the wackjobs that care about prohibiting birth control and maintaining bigotry


I must be seriously flawed, because I let this crap bother me. I am also very bothered by the so called intelligent people that vote along the same lines as the stupid crazy farks...

You don't have to agree with crazy just because they are hiding in the GOP

Obama still looks like the winner of that reality show, So You Want to be President.

Dial 1-900-HISTORC to vote for Obama.

Obama, not Romney, is the one facing blowback from his own party on the central issue of the campaign so far - Romney's history with Bain Capital.

Obama isn't giving back the Bain donations he has already received either. Obama criticizes with one hand and holds the other hand out collecting donations.

I'd trust Mike Allen's observations over yours.

He's one of the most impartial, connected, and aware journalists in the country. But I'm sure Quasar the Fark commenter is a much better observer of politics.

The author is VERY VERY concerned about Obama's campaign.

I know the media needs a horse race to sell tampons and deodorant, but Jesus people! This election is like a race between Stephen Hawking and the Flash.

You know, I was going to try to summarize it myself but everything I came up with was no better than what you wrote. I mean I had this whole thing mocking the criticisms of Obama's message 5 months out and how he might want to hold his strongest message for 5 days out instead and whatnot but really, it was just Politiol jerking off hoping to draw page views.

Done in 1.

This isn't kneejark partisanship. I was reading that article and as each paragraph went by I honestly have no idea where he's getting this depiction of events.

Yes. If you don't think that the Obama campaign lost some steam with the very public in-party disagreements with how they should attack Bain, and then the swiftness that Booker back-tracked, as if the campaign called him up and forced him to, than you are the one with blinders on.

Obama is still the frontrunner, no doubt, but he has lost the last couple weeks just as much as he won during the whole birth control/vagina probe issue.

You can still support Obama, and admit his campaign didn't have the best couple weeks, its alright.
 
2012-05-25 01:38:34 PM  
not to come across as concerned or whatever, but ignoring the levels of derp this guy went through to make the gay marriage thing sound like some kind of impediment, he actually does have a point about how the obama team seems to be, if not off message, then not really getting it across that well. I feel like if Obama and his crew were at the top of their game they could be getting safety room in the polls, instead Romney is slowly but steadily closing the gap.

Jjaro: Obama is still the frontrunner, no doubt, but he has lost the last couple weeks just as much as he won during the whole birth control/vagina probe issue.


Yeah, if you look three weeks ago:
Gallup 5/3 - 5/9 3000 RV 44 47 Romney +3

And you look most recently:
Gallup Tracking 5/18 - 5/24 3050 RV 47 46 Obama +1

You can see clearly Obama lost a lot of ground over the last 3 weeks. Man he sucks.

Jjaro: You can still support Obama, and admit his campaign didn't have the best couple weeks, its alright.


You can still support this journalist and admit this article is stupid. It's alright.
 
2012-05-25 01:41:18 PM  
I'd rather spend three weeks as Barack Obama than three years as Mitt Romney. For one thing, I could do more good.

Mitt Romney is the GOP's equivalent of George McGovern, '72. Tailor-made for the party's fundamental, most closely-held ideals, but useless for the rest of the country.

/sorry, Mr. McG.
