« Presidents "connect" when they're popular | Main | Jennifer Steinhauer: The proto-Dowd? »

January 25, 2010


Three of Obama's top aides were on last Sunday's talk shows and each of them had a different figure for the millions of jobs supposedly saved by the "stimulus." This, in the face of month after month job losses. The number of jobs is in free-fall. The unemployment rate far above the 8% Obama promised. It's clear to most Americans that the "stimulus" may be costing jobs rather than saving them.

How can Obama connect when the White House is putting out spin that is preposterous and not even consistent?

Amazingly, Bob Herbert in yesterday's New York Times said Obama has a credibility gap and is "less than candid". http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/26/opinion/26herbert.html?ref=opinion How can Obama connect, when even his strongest supporters don't believe him?

David: Obama's supporters discovered the guy IS unbelievable. Campaigned against individual insurance mandate and spending freeze - now pushing both. Unbelievable in the most literal sense.


I would hope *any* President wouild be more perceptive than the average journalist!
