A coworker came to me and had a short conversation. She was Haitian and took great pride in Obama as a symbol. However, she is now looking at her tax bill and the job market and shaking her head.
Some of the job losses are the business cycle. Obama however will make things much worse. His poll numbers are slipping fast and it is the economy that is driving those numbers down. He hasn't said much and presented an image of optimism.
I am starting to think he may get challenged in the Democratic primary if the economy doesn't get better.
