Obama has a bunch of problems that are hindering him in his campaigning.

The first is a lack of campaigning experience. In his political life, Obama's has always been in elections that are safe for the Democrat, so his real election contest has ALWAYS been in the primary. So he is accustomed to defeating other Democrats, and not having to worry about a real contest with a Republican. A smart candidate would realize his weakness and get a campaign manager with national experience and some wins behind him. But Obama gets David Plouffe & Axelrod. None of them have any national experience, and like Obama have managed primaries in safe Democratic areas.

So Obama gets surprised when he finds out that some things, like guns, are major considerations on a national scale.

He just doesn't understand the rest of the nation, nor do his campaign managers.

I think this is accurate, and it explains why he is hopelessly blundering into things now that the GE is underway. His major opponent to date, Hillary Clinton, held back from doing really dirty and racist things. No matter what you might think of the Clintons, their connection to the African American community is real and seems to be sincere on their part. The GOP will have no such quibbles, however, and will get as dirty as a GE needs to be. And they will be smart about it. I will enjoy watching Barry's fall at the hands of the GOP. It is the LEAST this little bastard deserves for accusing everyone of racism but playing "99 Problems but the Bitch ain't one" at his Iowa win and allowing his followers to wear Bros before Hos T-shirts.

I hope his inexperience destroys him.
