Philip, your mention of hubris on Barack Obama’s part reminds me of late March, when I saw Hillary Clinton campaigning Pennsylvania while Obama vacationed in the Virgin Islands. The time Obama lost on the campaign trail was bad enough, but that trip sent a completely wrong message to voters. It’s cold in Pennsylvania in March, and most Pennsylvania Democrats can’t afford tropical vacations. In a state where the hard-hit industrial economy was the biggest issue, pictures of Obama splashing in the surf at St. Thomas were not what rank-and-file Democrats wanted to see.
Team Obama keeps sending these kinds of signals of overconfidence. That has to be troubling to Democrats nervously glancing at polls that don’t seem to justify such a cocky attitude.
