Rough going for Obama so far
Bad news on jobs and Bill Clinton’s tax talk hit hard
It’s just the first week of June and already this month has dealt President Obama a series of setbacks as he struggles to regain footing in what portends to be a tight race. First came last Friday’s dismal jobs report showing the unemployment rate rising for the first time in nearly a year. Then Bill Clinton, a star surrogate for the campaign, went rogue on national television, contradicting Obama’s message and endorsing Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthy. Another blow came last night when Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, a Republican, survived a historic recall election.
