The president’s economic plan fails to pass muster among a wide variety of voters, from independents to moderates, and some veteran Democrats are questioning whether the Obama campaign crew can handle what lays ahead, a Washington Post article reported.
“The economy is not in good shape,” said Dean Baker, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research. “I think the question is who’s to blame. He (Obama) came in with an economic disaster and the question is can you realistically expect him to have done better?”
In a June 11 report released by Democracy Corps, three Democratic stalwarts claim that the Obama campaign must move to a “new narrative” in order to be victorious in November.
Obama’s original plan of passing the “out of touch” baton on to Romney has instead come full circle, with both Democratic and Republican experts wondering if the president does have an idea of what the economy and the American people need.
