Forget Ebola. We have a crisis of leadership and confidence

There was a story over the weekend about Democrats hoping to save the 2014 election by generating African-American support.

Add to this a Hill story that Clinton Democrats are falling flat:

"Both Bill and Hillary Clinton have tried to turn on their charms to help centrist Democrats in Kentucky and Arkansas. But as candidates in both states are slipping, help from the party’s preeminent power couple is falling short."

It all confirms one political fact: President Obama is toxic and the public wants change.

President Obama's problem, from Iraq to Ebola, is a growing sense that he's in over his head and not up to the job. The LA Times calls it a lack of leadership:

"The United States does not remotely have an Ebola crisis, but it is beginning to have a crisis of confidence in the Obama administration's handling of the matter."

We've reached a point where President Obama's sorry record can not be hidden behind speeches. Even members of the media are catching on. Democrats avoid him or refuse to say who they voted for in 2012.

How does President Obama react to this crisis of confidence?  He appoints a political person to oversee the Ebola crisis. Once again, he missed an opportunity to appoint an expert, or person who inspires confidence. Instead, he hires someone who will look after message rather than making people feel comfortable with the nation's challenges.

We need a change. Better than that, we need to send President Obama a message in November. President Obama needs to hear loud and clear that the country wants a different president over the next two years.
