They Said It! Obama Can’t Run On Unpopular “Legislative Accomplishments”

- January 27, 2012

ABC News’ Jake Tapper Points Out Obama Can’t Run On His “Legislative Accomplishments” Because They Are “Not Popular”

ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos:  “The President echoing the themes from the State of the Union. We can't go back to those policies of George W. Bush.”

ABC News’ Jake Tapper: “What’s interesting, George, is the conundrum in which President Obama finds himself. He really can't run on so many of his major legislative accomplishments. Regardless of the merits of healthcare reform, financial reform, the stimulus, they’re not popular. So what you see is President Obama is putting out other issues to discuss: raising taxes on the wealthy, raising taxes on corporations so as to bring jobs back to the United States. These are the issues he wants to talk about because it's going to be difficult for him to talk about his record when it comes to his big achievements.”
