Democrat Congressman Elijah Cummings Admits Democrats Are Starting To Distance Themselves From Obama


When a President’s approval rating drops as low as Obama’s has, it can create a political death spiral as his party disassociates from him, which leads to lower ratings, which leads to less support from his party, and so on and so on until he becomes George W. Bush, leaving office with a 25% approval rating.

At issue, several Obama allies said, is a loss of trust in the president after only 106,000 people – instead of an anticipated half million – were able to buy insurance coverage the first month of the new “Obamacare” websites. In addition, some 4.2 million Americans received notices from insurers that policies Obama had promised they could keep were being canceled.

“Folks are now, I think in talking to members, more cautious with regard to dealing with the president,” said Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, the senior Democrat on the House Oversight Committee and one of the first leaders in his state to endorse Obama’s presidential candidacy six year ago.

Cummings, the White House’s biggest defender in a Republican-controlled committee whose agenda is waging war against the administration over the attack in Benghazi, the IRS scandal, a gun-tracking operation and now health care, said he still thinks Obama is operating with integrity. But he noted that not all his Democratic colleagues agree.

“They want to make sure that everything possible is being done to, number one, be transparent, (two) fix this website situation and, three, to restore trust,” Cummings said.

It’s pretty significant to have Elijah Cummings saying this because other than Michelle Obama, he’s probably Bo’s most ardent defender. When he’s forced to admit that Democrats are starting to get cautious about Obama, it’s bad news for Team Hope and Change.
