I think what you can say...is that the Obama team just never grasped priorities or where screw-ups would lead them. If they’d spent the first two years working on budget cuts, jobs for America, and the economy...then re-election for the Democrats in 2010 would have been easier. They simply didn’t grasp the true problem with the US economy.
Now, they get four years into this mess....realizing that they really didn’t know the true impact of recession, and want to fix it. But what they’ve offered on the table...doesn’t appeal to many voters and leaves too many question marks. You almost feel like they wanted to work on everything....except the economy, for four years.
