Grading Obama

This has got to rank right up there with one of the stupidest requests a campaign can ever make.

Obama's campaign asks supporters to grade its performance

President Obama’s campaign is calling on supporters to grade its performance amid a difficult early June for his reelection bid against presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney.
“This campaign is ramping up, and the decisions we make right now will shape our path to victory in November,” said campaign manager Jim Messina in an email to supporters sent Saturday night.
“That's why I want your input, because you are the ones building this campaign on the ground in your community. We want to know from you what's working, what we could be doing better, what you care about, and what you're hearing about the President and this campaign,” said Messina.
So he cares what his supporters think but has a tin ear when it comes to the rest of the voters? He thinks the private sector is doing "fine".
Obama walked that back later in the day but you have got to wonder if he realizes what joblessness means to the more than 23 million Americans out of work?
8.2% unemployment is just a number, it shields the democrats from seeing the real problems that it causes.
I doubt that there will ever be an accurate account of those who have dropped out of the job market or people forced to collect their social security benefits earlier than they wanted to due to the incompetent handling of this economy.
If Obama wants to be graded let him wait until November.
The forgotten men/women of this country will give him the grade he deserves.
