Here's a video of President Obama today on what might be the first stop of his Harry Truman Memorial Whistle Stop Tour of America. I got that idea from an article in the Daily Beast today making the comparison between Truman's situation and Obama's. Even though I don't think that President Obama has sunk nearly as low in public approval as Truman did in 1947, there are still some interesting parallels. If Obama starts railing about the "do nothing Congress," which is a theme he seems to be warming up to, and if next November, we see him holding up what we hope will be an erroneous headline saying "Romney (or Perry, or Bachmann, or whomever) defeats Obama," we'll know we have come full circle.
