Et tu, Time?

Why Obama is losing the political battle:

Throughout the year, we have been treated to Obama-led attacks on George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, Rush Limbaugh, Congressman Joe Barton (for his odd apology to BP), John Boehner (for seeking the speakership — or was it something about an ant?) and Fox News (for everything). Suitable Democratic targets in some cases, perhaps, but not worth the time of a busy Commander in Chief. In the past few days, we have witnessed the spectacle of the President himself and his top advisers wading into allegations that Republicans are attempting to buy the election using foreign money laundered through the Chamber of Commerce, combining with Karl Rove and his wealthy backers to fund a flood of negative television commercials. Not only is this issue convoluted and far-fetched, but it also distracts from the issues voters care about, frustrating political insiders and alienating struggling citizens (not that many are following such an offbeat story line). Feinting and gibing can’t obscure those job numbers.

    Do you think the WH is trying to change the subject from the job numbers and state of the economy, or is he searching for a foil? I can see both sides of the argument, in that changing the subject, even to a stupid one, would be a good idea. Also, he’s never been without a big enemy. He has many now, but not the big evil Bush and Cheney. Either way, this is bad politics and shows how he’s drowning in his inability to do anything positive for the economy.
