Democratic Pollsters Drop Bombshell Request To President Obama: “Step Aside”

November 25, 2011

According to longtime Democratic Party pollsters Pat Caddell and Doug Schoen, if Barack Obama has any chance to win re-election in 2012, his campaign must engage in the most brutal campaign in the history of American politics.  They then go on to suggest instead of doing that, Barack Obama should simply step aside in favor of who they deem the only politician now capable of saving both the country and the Democratic Party.

Caddell and Schoen point out that with Obama’s overall approval well below 50%, and his handling of the U.S. economy at or just below 40%, the prospects for a second term remain as difficult a path as any president has faced since Jimmy Carter in 1980. The president’s legacy is already one of repeated political gridlock, a climate created in great part by Barack Obama’s inability to communicate effectively with members of his own party, and even less so with the opposition. The rebuke of Obama is tough – but it’s also accurate. As the two pollsters so succinctly put it in their editorial – can President Obama honestly say the nation is better off than it was four years ago?

So who then do they suggest save both the country and the Democratic Party? Why none other than Barack Obama’s own Secretary of State of course – Hillary Clinton. Here is how the two Democrats put it in their own words:

He should abandon his candidacy for re-election in favor of a clear alternative, one capable not only of saving the Democratic Party, but more important, of governing effectively and in a way that preserves the most important of the president’s accomplishments. He should step aside for the one candidate who would become, by acclamation, the nominee of the Democratic Party: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    I don’t think Obama’s failure has anything to do with not being able to communicate effectively or standing up to the republicans. He has a psychological condition brought on by how he has been effective his entire political life.

    Barack Obama is the bird feeder. He places a bunch of seeds directly in his hands, then groups come up into him and feed out of his hand. This process is no longer working, and he can’t bring himself to um, er, um, change.

    Obama can only communicate effectively when he is reading from a script. Obama is seldom seen communicating to the public without one. Even his press conference questions are submitted ahead of time where coherent answers are scripted by others doing his thinking for him. The names of WH reporters to call on submitted in advance with the corresponding responses supplied before he even hits the podium.

    Obama is the equivalent of an actor playing a president on a tv series called, “Down with Democracy- Socialism is the Future.”

    “Barack Obama is the bird feeder. He places a bunch of seeds directly in his hands, then groups come up into him and feed out of his hand. This process is no longer working, and he can’t bring himself to um, er, um, change.”

    The bird seed analogy is a good one describing his ability of trading Tax Payer Funded programs for lucrative campaign donations using public funds as seed money for filling his campaign War Chest. Good One- Alex! 🙂

    It’s just how Obama has operated. He gets a chunk of money, then he churns it out to those who support him. The problem is he has no coinciding plan that actually does not directly involve himself without him being able to be credited.

    Obama talks of stimulus plans and giving out loans, but never talks about interest rate relief for those who have the ability to pay down their debts, which is the ONLY WAY to fix the economy.

    Sadly, only Hillary Clinton would figure this out and implement a plan to save main street. All Obama is going to focus on is being less stiff than his opponents appear to be.

    I hear you, Alex- Obama is getting desperate and will do something destructive to the country very soon.
