Let's stop pretending. Barack Obama is a disaster as a crisis president. He has taken an economic collapse that was the result of Republican ideology and Republican policies, and made it the Democrats' fault. And the more that he is pummeled, the more he bends over.
Robert Kuttner thinks Obama may become the Democrat's Herbert Hoover, presiding over a fully Republican congress after 2012, provided he wins re-election at all. He raises the possibility of a Democratic Party challenger from the progressive left to Obama in 2012. We shall see.
