After offering an apology for the failed rollout of his signature health care reform law, President Obama in recent days has “pivoted” yet again — this time into full-blown campaign mode, blasting Republicans and reiterating his wish list of agenda items that can be achieved only if his party reclaims full control on Capitol Hill.

Over the past week, the president has spoken at Democratic Party fundraisers in Dallas and Miami, and used a Friday speech in New Orleans to bash the Republican Party and lay out an ambitious second-term agenda that includes immigration reform, infrastructure investment and free trade agreements.

His underlying strategy, analysts say, is twofold.

First, the White House is eager to turn attention away from Obamacare, which continues to garner nothing but negative publicity from website glitches at HealthCare.gov, reports of Americans being booted off their insurance plans and other problems.

Second, and perhaps more important, is the president’s resurrection of a message to voters — along with wealthy donors and party foot soldiers — that he needs Democrats in full control on Capitol Hill to accomplish anything substantive during his final years in office.

Mr. Obama’s “pivot,” a term the White House has used when laying out strategies for refocusing on the economy and job creation, also is an attempt, ahead of next year’s midterm elections, to reclaim the narrative of his presidency rather than continuing to be driven by frequent negative news of the day.

Traditionally upper 30% - lower 40% second term presidents don't get anything done less wade through one scandal after another. Like now for example. coffeetime.gif
I hate to break it to the Dems, but there are no coattails to ride come midterm.
Honestly, are they going to campaign on the ACA?
I don't think so.
I've already seen some posturing by Dems to distance themselves from this.
