#1 Barack Obama has an accountability problem. It's not simply that during the 2008 campaign he made extravagant promises to heal the planet, slow the rise of the oceans, end political divisions in America, and usher in an era of hope and change.
Yeah, and too many suckers fell for his snakeoil.

#2 The voters we call "Independents" are not independent at all. They are not informed, and not interested in politics. They are emotional.
Emotional voters want and need to get excited. Obama excited them. Now he has lost his luster.
The problem for our side is that no one is excited about Romney. We like him better than Obama (actually, we hate Obama so much that even Romney seems a likely improvement), but we are not excited. And if we aren't excited, then Independents won't get excited.
