Obama Declares 2010 Elections "Fear Versus Hope"

Heating up the 2010 elections even further, President Obama stated today that the 2010 Congressional and Gubernatorial elections were a face-off of “fear versus hope.”  Speaking to a crowd in Cleveland, the President asked his audience not to believe Republicans this election season, calling their attention to the United States’ current economic situation “the past” and his economic policies “the future.”

The President’s statement comes at a time when unemployment has risen to 9.6% this summer, while several Congressional Democrats are calling for a new Stimulus Bill, while others call for an extension of President George W. Bush’s tax cuts.  Harsh economic data has cost President Obama politically, with many Republicans and some Democrats calling declaration that the 2010 summer would be one of “recovery” a major gaffe.
In the last few months, President Obama’s approval rating has dipped below his disapproval rating.  With a summer of poor economic data, to his support to the extremely unpopular support for the so-called Mosque at Ground Zero, the President has contended with falling poll numbers this entire summer.

President Obama also promised tax cuts for the middle class, saying, “We should not hold middle class tax cuts hostage any longer. We are ready, this week, if they want, to give tax cuts to every American making $250,000 or less.”
