Hill Dems Getting Steamed at Obama? (David Corn, 9/03/10, Politics Daily)

Tick . . . tick . . . tick . . .

That's the sound of a time bomb on Capitol Hill that may soon explode. As the final stretch of the 2010 congressional elections is about to start -- Labor Day weekend is the traditional kickoff for campaign season -- Democrats are increasingly upset at the Obama White House. For weeks, President Obama, whether on vacation or not, has been not been publicly focusing on the only issue congressional Democrats care about: jobs. This week, Obama devoted most of his time to Iraq and the Middle East process. "None of that is going to drive our base to the polls in two months or convince independents to vote D," a senior House Democratic aide complains.

"We grudgingly said okay to Iraq, we grudgingly said okay to the Middle East stuff; it's all important," says a top Democratic Senate strategist. "But if the president doesn't turn to the economy like a laser beam next week, we're going to go wild."

Folks at the RNC have wet dreams where congressional Democrats head into this election denouncing the UR for not being as far Left as they are.
