Obama faces growing credibility crisis

From the Financial Times:

Robert Gibbs, Barack Obama’s chief spokesman, got into hot water this week for daring to speak the truth – that the Democrats could lose control of the House of Representatives in November. But it could be even worse than that.

Contrary to pretty much every projection until now, Democratic control of the Senate is also starting to coming into question. While Mr Obama’s approval ratings have continued to fall, and now hover at dangerously close to 40 per cent according an ABC-Washington Post poll published on Tuesday, the fate of his former colleagues in the Senate looks even worse.

  1. For some of us, Obama's "credibility gap" = 0. In 2008, we knew he had zero credibility to be President and so far, he has proved us correct. Maybe he could have made a great President had he waited several more years before running for President. But his political ambitions got the best of him and he ruined his chance at a great legacy. Now, he and us suffer together. But only for 2.5 more years.
