Let’s face facts: the presidential race is too close and that could affect candidates down the line. The President’s poor debate performance, Romney’s deliberate, manipulative lies, threats of voter intimidation (including threatening signs in minority districts), and an estimated half-trillion dollars in right-wing superPacs poised to saturate the airwaves with advertisements that are sure to be filled with the ugliest of lies … they all have the potential to put the radical right over the top and result in a Republican takeover of all branches of government. Unless something bold is done.
So what are some examples of bold moves that may be game-changers for President Obama? Here are a couple of my suggestions:
- Make President Clinton a member of your cabinet. Everyone, right and left, knows the effect President Clinton’s speech had on President Obama’s poll numbers after the DNC convention. And most everyone associates President Clinton with the best economy in recent memory. Why not make Bill the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers? Announce a return to the economy of the 90′s.
- Announce a change for some of the unpopular cabinet members, such as Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Attorney General Eric H. Holder.
I could go on but I want to open this up to my fellow Dems. What bold moves would you recommend to turn this election around?
