Dems To Obama: Voters Don't Buy the Economy Talk

Democratic strategists Stanley Greenberg and James Carville have released a striking new reportarguing in stark terms that some key voting groups now reject President Obama's claim that the economy is improving -- and may well reject Obama himself in November.

Democracy Corps, the political consulting group run by Greenberg and Carville, showed several Obama campaign commercials to focus groups in Ohio and Pennsylvania. Several of the group members, who were "all independents or weak partisans and ticket-splitters" and included both Obama and McCain voters from 2008, became irritated when shown Obama ads touting economic improvement. They don't see that improvement in their own lives, the report says, and they don't believe Obama when he claims things are better.

The consultants urge Obama to find a new economic message that appeals specifically to the stressed-out middle class. And now, Obama aides are pointing to a speech the president is scheduled to give in Cleveland Thursday as an opportunity to "frame" the debate in a way advantageous to Democrats.

But as Romney aides see it, the unspoken message of the Greenberg-Carville report is that Obama's only truly viable option is to step up negative attacks on Romney

    Write this down because this is what they’re going to say: The country just wasn’t ready for a president like Barack Obama.

    The world economy is in a mess, anyone who thinks Obama or Romney or anyone else can bring about serious recovery clearly has no training in economics. On paper, the economy is better but the only people who are aware of it are economists because it is only on paper.
    The long and short if it is that this slump will last for years no matter who is in power. However, a Republican in the White House will make it much worse.

    Obama lies so much that he's started believing his own crap. The idiot really does think the private sector is doing fine

    ....which means the public sector isn't and who's in charge of the public sector? Obama. What a moron.

    When business makes money, they employ people, they share so to speak. When govenment takes money they squander most and keep the most for themselves. No question about it government is not the solution it is the problem. Hope I quoted you right President Regan!
