Turnabout is fair play. In the 2008 presidential campaign Barack Obama gained traction by calling John McCain, whose campaign was veering back and forth in search of a thematic issue, “erratic.” Now it’s President Obama who is flailing about for a coherent message, Politico reports.

"Republicans have become the change we've been waiting for," says Mark McKinnon, a former adviser to McCain and President George W. Bush.

At a White House meeting last week, Democratic strategists complained that the administration doesn’t have a strong vision.
