President Obama On Shaky Ground as Elections Draw Closer
Republicans say President Obama’s stumbles this week expose his vulnerabilities heading into the general election.
They argue Obama’s hot-mic comment to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev about his “flexibility” on missile defense after the election — paired with the rough treatment his health law received at the Supreme Court — prove the president is on shaky ground with voters.
“I think the activity this week shows us that Obama is vulnerable heading into November,” said Kirsten Kukowski, a press secretary for the Republican National Committee. “His signature legislation, ObamaCare, is in danger of getting overturned by the court, and there is a narrative building that Obama will say and do anything to get reelected, even if it means keeping Americans in the dark on important foreign policy with Russia.”
