Being defined by a negative

I see the president is visiting a small business in VA today. Pushing 'clean jobs.' What's the first thing to come to my mind? That he seems to care far, far, far more about 'transforming America' with a radical Congress on health care and environmental issues than he does about seriously slashing unemployment.

This is a big problem for him. I think a LOT of people feel this way, given how far he has dropped in the polls the last 6-8 months.

Obama has come to be identified largely by a negative stereotype - radical who doesn't care about the recession.

Just as Bush, right or wrong, came to be identified with an unpopular war.
