Barack can't connect on the economy. That was clear in 2008. Getting him to talk about the economy is just going to underscore his weakness.
James Carville's smart and maybe he's planning to tutor Barack on how to talk like a man passionate about the economy. But if not, they need to come up with a new strategy.
It probably doesn't help things when Barack's jetting around the country over dressed.
In a tough economy, dressing like a dandy is probably not a good idea.
Did you see his tie today?
The one he wore to Baltimore?
Alec Baldwin's character would make fun of it on 30 Rock. Way too flashy, way too many colors.
Barack's like Alexis Carrington trying to connect with the middle class. It's just not going to work.
