The Chicago Tribune’s Steve Chapman has written an article listing the reasons Barak Obama should “withdraw.” We don’t have to wonder any more when such questions would begin from the MSM. It will be interesting to see how this is played by the rest of the media.
Here’s a taste of what Chapman had to say:
When Ronald Reagan ran for re-election in 1984, his slogan was “Morning in America.” For Barack Obama, it’s more like midnight in a coal mine.
His approval rating is at its lowest level ever. His party just lost two House elections — one in a district it had held for 88 consecutive years. He’s staked his future on the jobs bill, which most Americans don’t think would work.
The vultures are starting to circle. Former White House spokesman Bill Burton said that unless Obama can rally the Democratic base, which is disillusioned with him, “it’s going to be impossible for the president to win.” Democratic consultant James Carville had one word of advice for Obama: “Panic.”
Is there really any chance that Obama would step aside? Might he more likely just announce he is not running? How would Republicans handle the presidential election without Obama as the Democrat candidate? Stay tuned to see who else piles on to hasten the unravelling of the Obama presidency.
