A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll this week found that nearly 6 in 10 Americans believe the country is on the wrong track and a majority disapproves of President Obama’s handling of the economy. Nearly two-thirds expect the economy to get worse still.
Unsurprisingly, turning the treasury over to the reprobates that engineered the crisis is bad economics and bad politics.
Unsurprisingly, trading the support of Democrats to court Republicans gains neither crucial votes nor enthusiastic supporters.
A president should not put up with a team that achieves such ignoble results.
