OK, champ, you’ve still got nearly four years left, you might want to stop the campaigning, partying, golf and basketball and give this governing thing a try.
Of course this is just talk since he’d rather continue the endless campaign, especially as his style of “governing” consists of having no opposition.
President Obama, speaking at his campaign-turned advocacy group, contradicted media reports that his primary focus right now is setting up House Democrats to retake the majority in the 2014 midterms.
“It’s not about 2014,” Obama told Organizing for Action this evening, per the pool report. “I actually wanna govern, at least for a couple of years.” He added that “If a senator or congressman from a swing district is about to take a tough vote on immigration or guns, they need to feel supported.”
Rep. Steve Israel, D-N.Y., chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, explained that winning the House in 2014 is a high priority for Obama.
At his current rate of progress not only is winning the House a fantasy, he stands to lose the Senate. Petulant and obtuse as he usually is, he’ll be a real prize those last two years.
