If the conventional wisdom has been Democrats in general are dissatisfied with Barack Obama and his administration, if anything, said dissatisfaction appears to be growing as we approach the mid-term elections.
The complaints seen to be across several fronts, from focus and competency, to attitude and even perhaps commitment to the very party that brought him to the dance. By claiming Obama has “hindered, not helped” them retain the senate, he’s actually being portrayed more as an obstacle, than an asset, right now.
Still, the chorus of complaint is growing. Some Democrats assert that the administration’s flubs on healthcare and Ebola have been electorally costly. Others allege a failure to excite the base. Still others say that at times the White House just hasn’t seemed unduly bothered whether or not control of the Senate flips to the GOP.
