ED MORRISSEY: Obama’s Growing Credibility Gap with Mainstream Voters. “The problem for Obama and the Left this time is that they have to make an actual sales pitch – and judging from their efforts, they don’t know how to talk effectively enough to middle America to succeed at it. This problem starts at the top.”

UPDATE: From Clive Crook at The Atlantic: “Obama’s big problem, I think, is that he is no longer the president he said he would be. Above all, he’s stopped trying to be that president.” Yep.
