MY WORDS : obama is in a hurry because he is loosing the independents and will loose the senate in the midterm elections, probably not the house,but the blue dogs may abandon him, so he will then be dead in the water after the i think 2010 elections, the article has more of an explanation.the senate is lost in the next election

Reporting and analysis from ABC News Chief Washington Correspondent and "This Week" Host George Stephanopoulos

August 21, 2009 7:59 AM

The biggest problem for President Obama in today's ABC News/Washington Post poll is this: only 49 percent of Americans are confident that he'll "make the right decisions for the country's future" -- down from 60 percent in April.

Voters still like Obama. His overall job approval is steady at 57 percent. But they're screaming "listen to us" and "slow down." And they're worried he's getting in over his head.

Blaming the GOP for blocking health care will make Democrats feel better. But it may turn off Independents who are already abandoning Obama (17 point drops in handling health care and overall job approval).

In fact, the best short term antidote is a solid 2 week vacation. Give everyone a chance to cool down and hope the economy's slow mend continues. More than anything else, that's the key to post Labor Day success.

Here's the rest of my conversation with Diane on GMA.
