I have never in my life seen a President care so little about his party.  When his party faces an election that could well wipe the party right out of American politics, he stands around and rails at "Washington", not Republicans.  

It is his weak, wishy washy leadership style that has created a massive enthusiasm gap between Democratic and Republican voters this year.  

It is his refusal to pack the economy with stimulus in 2009 and 2010 and to not jawbone Ben Bernanke into printing trillions of new dollars to put in the hands of the American people into to stop the massive deflationary cycle that is taking hold that is killing the Democratic party in this crucial midterm election.
