The Democrats are alarmed at the most recent Gallup polls that indicate a major shift toward the Republican Party for the midterm elections!
There is obviously the likelihood that the opposition party will gain seats in both houses of Congress, but that does not mean it has to an electoral “Armageddon”!
Obama, along with all members of his party who are running for election or reelection, needs to change strategy and tactics and show the electorate that they have been fighting for them and will not give in to Republican demagoguery!
The President must stop being so intellectual and gentlemanly, as that obviously does not work!
He must be focused and disciplined about emphasizing the progress that has been made in the past 19 months!
Obama needs to simplify and communicate his message better, and in that sense, seem like Ronald Reagan, who was the Great Communicator!
Obama needs to use the teleprompter less often, and learn to communicate his message more directly, and show emotion and commitment, even if he does not use the precise words he has planned to utilize!
He needs to show that he is willing to fight, go on the offensive as Harry Truman was excellent in doing in his years in the Presidency!
Obama needs to appeal to independents about his positive vision for the future, and work hard to win them back for the Democratic party!
Obama was able to rally people to vote in 2008, and he needs to get the “fire in his belly” again to limit losses in 2010!
Obama needs to remind people why they voted for him two years ago, and electrify the debate over the future in the next two months!
If he does all of the above, the losses in November will be minimal, rather than catastrophic!
