Should Democratic Governors be worried about Obama's track record?

WASHINGTON – Democratic governors said Sunday they worry about President Barack Obama's track record on fighting Republican political attacks and urged him to better connect with anxious voters. Some allies pleaded for a new election-year strategy focused on the economy.

"It's got to be better thought out," Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell said. "It's got to be more proactive." And, he said, Democrats must hit back just as hard as they are hit by Republicans.

Eight months before the first midterm elections of Obama's presidency, most Americans are frustrated with — even angered by — persistent unemployment and gridlock in Washington. Democrats fear voters will punish the party in power.

  • Yep. Recently, I've seen a once-beloved Democratic mayor lose his seat to a relative unknown Republican. The Democratic Governor of a nearby state has become so despised that only a miracle will keep him in office.
