According to Reuters, “Four years ago, Senator Claire McCaskill was one of Barack Obama’s biggest boosters in his presidential campaign. But when he recently visited her state of Missouri, she did not have time to join him. Many of McCaskill’s fellow Democrats in Congress may also decide they are too busy to be with Obama, whose approval rating of about 40 percent as the economy struggles threatens to be a drag on their own reelection chances next year.”
“You may see a number of Democrats say ‘Sorry, I have a scheduling conflict,’” a senior Democratic lawmaker is quoted as saying.
This is more evidence of how much Democrats themselves view the president as a lethal political threat. And the fact the greatest wish for many GOP candidates is that their Democratic opponents are closely linked to Obama shows how much the world has changed since the cocky early days of the Obama era.
The Obama presidency is being humbled by events and collapsing because of its own ineptness; even Obama’s own party members know it.
