Zuckerman: Love Affair With Obama Is Over

Saturday, 06 Nov 2010 06:13 PM

U.S. News & World Report publisher Mort Zuckerman sums up the elecorate's mood with President Barack Obama in seven succiinct words: "The love affair with Obama is over." In his magazine column, Zuckerman writes that the the results of the midterm elections "represent a sharp rebuke to President Obama," who "got his mort,zuckerman,barack,obama,love,affairpriorities badly wrong, sacrificing the need to help create jobs in favor of his determination to pass Obamacare."

According to Zuckerman, Obama "re-energized the Republican Party, lost the independent center, and failed to overcome the widespread sense that the country is heading in the wrong direction."

Some key excerpts:

"He [Obama] came across as a young man in a grown-up's game — impressive but not presidential. A politician but not a leader, managing American policy at home and American power abroad with disturbing amateurishness. ...

"Today the polls indicate that the president has reached a point where a majority of Americans have no confidence, or just some, that he will make the right decisions for the country. ...

"The love affair with Obama is over. The jobless will be the new swing voters. Unemployment, underemployment, and collapsing home equity will be the leading factors in 2012. The administration hopes the economy will have improved significantly by then, but it is running out of time and out of the confidence of the American public."
