This won't work for Obama. Truman was viewed as a good honest man, Obama is at best an overly slick politician and at worst a traitor. So when Washington became overly political it was easy for Truman to blame congress. It will be nearly impossible for Obama to do so. After all there is no way to separate Obama from Obamacare.
In addition running against the GOP house means running with Nancy Pelosi. She still is quite hated around the country and her continued presence will be an albatross around the neck of the Democrats. OK a dead sea bird would probably be more pleasant to have around than Pelosi but you get the picture.

(There are millions of paranoid people in the world and they are all out to get me.)
So far Obama has been emulating Washington, Lincoln, FDR, JFK, Reagan - and now Truman.
Why stop there? Why not become Joan of Arc, George III, Attila the Hun and Julius Ceasar?
