Analysts: White House Panicking Over ElectionsSay Dems Are Distancing Themselves From Obama, Angry Over Economy, Health Care Fallout
By Jimmy So


Play CBS Video Video Will Democrats Lose The House?
With election season just two months away, incumbent Democrats are scrambling to hold their seats in the house. Harry Smith spoke with Jim Vandehei of Politico and Nancy Cordes, who covers Congress for CBS News, on how the current state of the economy will affect the upcoming elections.


Analysts tell CBS' Face the Nation that Democrats are increasingly distancing themselves from President Barack Obama, and are blaming him for failing to boost the economy while he cost them political capital in the fight for health care reform. (CBS)

  • Sweet,


    Dam right we don't care about your Marxist- Socialist-progressive system. We are fighting you progressives to keep what has made America great for over 200 years. We don't want your change that we can't and won't believe in. We have seen it destroy to many other countries.

  • They want to distance themselves now, but yet they helped to pass this mess. That is what you get when you let a bunch of lawyers have control of congress.

  • If all goes well in November, PBO may have to deal with that pesky "balance of power" thing!

  • They appear to be fairly panicked ... not that they don't deserve to be. They've managed to put all of us so far in debt that none of us will see it paid off, done everything that people told them not to, ignored the economy and the jobless situation until after they shoved their HC bill down our throats ...

    I'm trying to work up some sympathy for them but it's a busy day here ... working on the new goat pen, canning peaches, baking bread ... I think that some of you who like these fools are going to have to give them a hug and tell 'em that it will all be ok. I don't have time.

  • Do you think any of them realize that the first mistake was to put a person who had no executive experience and had never run any business, and had been a college professor for about 12 seconds in the largest executive job in the world with the largest budget in the world might have been the first mistake in a long list of mistakes? College professors don't make good executives historically in any business, but you don't tap a person who has zero experience and use the office of POTUS as the learning curve. Do you think they will learn from this? NAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Republicans, to the detriment of US, are going to continue to stall and play sill games while making it damn near impossible to get anything done...and DEMS won't use the POWER they have been given BY THE PEOPLE....

    stalling will certainly be better than passing more of the progressive shit that has been passed since Obama came into office and that "power" is soon to be stripped away.

  • Who cares?


    If the dems are too stupid to realize it isn't about one man they deserve to live in fear. Congressional dems have a LOW approval rating, but republicans are LOWER...however, the GET THE INCUMBANT OUT attitude favors the republicans since there are currently more dem incumbents. Either way, its a crap shoot...no one coming in is REALLY going to change anything...Republicans, to the detriment of US, are going to continue to stall and play sill games while making it damn near impossible to get anything done...and DEMS won't use the POWER they have been given BY THE PEOPLE....

    Obama to Launch New Economic Aid Package
    Poll: Obama Reaches New Low on Handling Economy
    (CBS)  With many polls indicating the Republicans may win back control of the House of Representatives (and possibly the Senate as well) in the upcoming mid-term elections, Jim VandeHei, the executive editor of Politico, told CBS' "Face the Nation" that the Obama administration is in a horrible position.

    "Does the White House understand this?" asked guest host Harry Smith. "Do you feel any sense of panic or concern" on the part of the administration?

    "They get it. There's panic. There's concern," VandeHei said. "The reality for this administration stinks, politically and practically, when it comes to the economy. You're not going to be able to change that 9.6-percent unemployment figure. You can't get anything from Congress in the next couple of months."
