    the expressed policy of the ostensible leader of the Democratic Party.

    Is this really an effective campaign slogan?

    Help us fight the guy you just helped us elect!

      are an independent voice.  It is only is one assumes that Democrats must agree with the president on everything that there is a problem.

      Most voters will be fine with a candidate that says I support President Obama's policies when I think they are right for my constituents and oppose when I think they are not.

      As for "figting" Obama, I am not fighting Obama.  I'm opposing a policy in a budget proposal.  

      Voters easily understand that.

      So your slogan is incorrect and yes, Dems easily can put distance between themsleves and the budget proposal of Obama.
