Running away from Bush worked so well for the GOP eight years ago, didn’t it? Professor Ditherton Wiggleroom isn’t making things easier for his own Senate caucus when he insists that while he isn’t on the ballot this year, his agenda is. But read past the headline to learn of Wiggleroom’s exasperation:
With so many Democrats trying to suggest a distance from Obama that doesn’t exist, Axelrod added, it’s natural for the president and his team “to be a little frustrated.”
Another senior Democrat who advises the White House, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter, said the current feeling among Obama and his aides is “exasperation.”
“He doesn’t think they have any reason to run away from him,” the adviser said. “He thinks there is a strong message there.”
Because that’s what Valerie tells him.
