Democrats believe that President Obama is “ill-served by his current White House staff and must reboot his second term following the disastrous Obamacare rollout,” The Hill reports. I have long maintained that President Obama ran two virtually flawless and technologically savvy presidential campaigns, only to bungle his signature legislation. That speaks to the people around him not being ready for prime time.
The Hill: ”First-term insiders argue the White House’s weakness was defined by a lack of preparedness, messaging blunders and failure to keep the president informed. They say Obama’s team lacks depth after the departures of longtime advisers David Axelrod, David Plouffe, Robert Gibbs and Patrick Gaspard, and suggest new people must be brought on.”
I would also add Rahm Emanuel to the list. He served as President Obama’s chief of staff during his first time.
