    Panic? In the White House? I find that hard to believe, I haven't seen anything from the WH to indicate they realize that Nov. is going to be, horrific for them.
    Really not picturing Rahm, Obama, Axlerod and crew in panic mode. It's all politics and calculations. The first task for the WH is to do what is best for the WH. That doesn't necessarily require salvaging control of both houses. Losing the HoR may have some advantage to Obama leading up to the 2012 presidential elections. (assuming the economy remains in the tank, the GOP can then be a target of blame)

    The campaign team the got Obama elected are good at what they do. Suspect they have their plans and contingencies for whatever the outcome of the midterms turns out to be......

    Re: Analysts: White House Panicking Over Elections

    the president's panic has been apparent in his footsteps for weeks

    he's desperate for something to trumpet, some collection of headlines he can claim as his own

    his first bid was auto's, he'd saved the industry, he felt

    but then we saw the worst august for the carmakers, across the board, since 1983

    Weak auto sales are latest sign of sluggish U.S. economy - Sep. 1, 2010

    august, evidently, is a very important time for the fords and gm's...

    so, obtuse obama blithely bounced over to iraq, only his second oval office address

    it's been universally panned, from bill-o to rachel maddow to howie kurtz to david gergen...

    to house and senate democrats

    the political situation in baghdad is frozen, the combat troops remain (under a different name), the sects are seething, the little girls and grammas are still getting grenaded, and the only real winner in this sadsack, slapdash story is iran

    and, naturally, when president pie-in-the-face merely utters the word, "iraq," concerned americans in all corners by course conjure up, "afghanistan," OBAMA'S WAR

    so we skip off sunnily to these super hi profile mideast peace talks, a white house production, starring ms hillary in her bid for the oscar

    except the dialogue excludes the popularly represented 40% of palestinians in gaza, which saw action yesterday

    the putz on pennsylvania ave appears unapprised

    he can't make any progress with the palestinian authority in the west bank with the brotherhood in gaza continuing disgruntled and aggrieved

    and bebe is building again

    meanwhile, over-his-head obama announces---PEACE IN A YEAR!

    next, we have 9-11 coming up in 5 days

    exactly what will oblivious barry be doing?

    he can't go to new york

    he can't say this and he certainly can't say THAT...

    and if he says nothing he's gonna ENFURIATE americans of all persuasions, prominently including new yorkers, conspicuously featuring the msm

    and, now---he's completely boxed in on the bush tax cuts

    the entire economy is cowering in uncertainty---uncertainty in health care, uncertainty in cap and trade, 2000 pages of uncertainty in the reg reform

    so, asked about the extension of the cuts to ALL americans, obstinately backed by lieberman, nelson, conrad and others, david plouffe on mtp yesterday said, "i don't know"

    unbelievable

    this white house has STILL not come down with decision on where IT stands, now that rubber's reached road, of TAXING THE RICH

    are you sure these people know what they're doing?

    embarrassed yet?

    that was fast
