Senate Democrats vent anger with Barack Obama

A classic illustration of co-dependence.
Senate Democrats – including typically mild-mannered Bill Nelson of Florida – lit into President Barack Obama during an unusually tense air-clearing caucus session on Thursday, senators and staffers told POLITICO.

Nelson told colleagues Obama’s unpopularity has become a serious liability for Democrats in his state and blamed the president for creating a toxic political environment for Democrats nationwide, according to two Democrats familiar with his remarks.

“It was a raucous caucus,” said one Democratic senator, who spoke on condition of anonymity because closed-door sessions are not supposed to be discussed with outsiders.

It seems that it’ll be a hard slog for Obama to win the next elections. If there are no positive outcomes of the direction the US is taking right now Sarah Palin can definitely start to drum up support for her campaign in 2012.
