Rick Klein on what the President is doing to help in 60 congressional districts targeted for wins by the GOP:
Enter President Obama — or maybe not so much.
Though the president retains popularity in many corners of the country, the places where he’s grown substantially less popular happen to coincide with the places where Democrats find themselves most endangered.
That means the president is unlikely to be able to be able to turn around the sagging fortunes of Democrats this fall. Many of the same districts where a big political gun is most needed are exactly where this particular weapon won’t be deployed.
Maybe — and I’m really going out on a limb here — Obama should have worked to gain public support for his great big bills before letting Nancy Pelosi shove them through Congress.
Just a thought.
