Frank Rich: "Barack Obama, Phone Home"

Frank Rich:
After his “shellacking,” President Obama had to do something. But who had the bright idea of scheduling his visit to India for right after this election? The Democrats’ failure to create jobs was at the heart of the shellacking. Nothing says “outsourcing” to the American public more succinctly than India. But the White House didn’t figure this out until the eve of Obama’s Friday departure, when it hastily rebranded his trip as a jobs mission. Perhaps the president should visit one of the Indian call centers policing Americans’ credit-card debts to feel our pain. MORE...
Howie P.S.: Even more than being forced to pray that Harry Reid would win, the cruel fact that Rhambo argued (correctly, it now seems) that jobs rather than health care should have been Obama's first task is a very bitter pill to have to swallow.
