  1. Two things. One, it is not just the Democratic chtnteriag classes that are having trouble with Obama. Obama’s approval ratings are down across the board, which suggests that this is not simply a messaging problem from the Democrats. I really don’t think that if the liberal blogosphere started becoming virulently pro-Obama that it would change that much. Two, the guy requested a message and accomplishments in 25 words. That’s pretty tough to do for any candidate. In that context, I think DeFazio’s answer is an accurate one. Most of Obama’s presidency has been about limiting damage (the damage of the Tea Party, the damage of the economic collapse, etc.) so it could have been worse is an appropriate slogan. If you look at Obama without that context, his record does appear weak, particularly compared to Bush who did a lot of things, though almost all of them were damaging to the country.
