It’s so bad even “Tingles” is turning on this unpopular president.
Obama cheerleader Chris Matthews admitted on Morning Joe today that Barack Obama was the loser of the year.
NewsBusters has the transcript:
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Terrible year for the president. I mean, it’s terrible, this…
JOE SCARBOROUGH: Can you go back a year? One year ago, the president was getting ready for his second inauguration. So much hope. This has been a terrible year.
MATTHEWS: There’s another piece of it which you’re subtly getting at. It’s not just that it’s a bad year in terms of the rollout. There’s an erosion in interest. It feels like a very long presidency now. It feels like the seventh or eighth year of a presidency. It doesn’t feel like the fifth. There wasn’t that rejuvenation that comes with re-election. There wasn’t any, certainly he was never going to get a honeymoon from the other side, but there was no sense of wow. And I think that’s hurt him a lot.
After five years of “hope and change” Barack Obama is as unpopular as Richard Nixon.
