Obama in trouble, lefties and righties agree

From conservative David Brooks, on public radio Friday, when asked — as the President suggested — if it's true that President Obama has a communications problem:

Mr. BROOKS: Yeah. Well, maybe the Titanic had a communications problem with the iceberg. You know, I just think it's a wrong diagnosis. You know, 60 or 70 percent of this election was the economy, no question about that. But when you take a look at your four major initiatives: cap and trade, health care, bailouts, stimulus bill and they're all unpopular, well, usually when parties promote unpopular things, they suffer in the next election.

To lefty Ted Rall, disgusted at Obama for his lack of action on unemployment:

When both sides of the political spectrum agree that the President is fooling himself when he blames his messaging and not his actions…you know he has a real problem.
