“A Democratic strategist said Obama has become such a problem for down-ticket Democrats that he was wary of encouraging candidates to run next year.”

President Obama’s hostility to Israel and his awful record has lost a Democratic seat in New York City.

There is no spinning this for the left, no way top dress it up as other than a complete repudiation for the president and his supporters in the Congress.

Only an incumbent who is indifferent to re-election will back Stimulus 2.0 or indulge the president’s Alinskyite rhetoric, much less his pattern of anti-Israel actions.

Even “safe” Democratic senators on the ballot in 2012 have got to be urging the president to stop the posturing and start being serious on entitlements and fiscal discipline.

And GOP primary voters have to recognize that this president is beatable in the same way that Carter was beatable in 1980, and for many of the same reasons. What the GOP needs to do is find the nominee who best combines Reagan’s optimism and good humor with a commitment to Reagan’s agenda of peace through strength, a respect for life, and a deep belief in free markets.
