Looks like Walter is seeing the writing on the wall for Obama. After all he was Jimmy Carters golden boy VP who Reagan also slaughtered in 84. The worst administration of the 20th century says Obama is making the same mistakes they did. Mondale clearly knows that Obama is out of touch with the American people and knows that Palin will annihilate him if she runs. Should Obama get rid of the teleprompters and start connecting with the American people or does Obama even know how to do that? John Fund: The Carter-Obama Comparisons Grow - WSJ.com Quote: Comparisons between the Obama White House and the failed presidency of Jimmy Carter are increasingly being made—and by Democrats. Walter Mondale, Mr. Carter's vice president, told The New Yorker this week that anxious and angry voters in the late 1970s "just turned against us—same as with Obama." As the polls turned against his administration, Mr. Mondale recalled that Mr. Carter "began to lose confidence in his ability to move the public." Democrats on Capitol Hill are now saying this is happening to Mr. Obama. Mr. Mondale says it's time for the president "to get rid of those teleprompters and connect" with voters. Another of Mr. Obama's clear errors has been to turn over the drafting of key legislation to the Democratic Congress: "That doesn't work even when you own Congress," he said. "You have to ride 'em." Mr. Carter himself is heightening comparisons with his own presidency by publishing his White House diaries this week. "I overburdened Congress with an array of controversial and politically costly requests," he said on Monday. The parallels to Mr. Obama's experience are clear.
