Is There Anything Obama Could Have Done To Remain Popular? | The New Republic

Obama is unpopular for doing his job. For sticking to his guns, for being patient, for getting things passed through congress.

The fact that world events haven't helped, that the party out of power doesn't like it, that old white people feel angry and marginalized is sort of beside the point.

If he gets stuff done, then the wrath of the ill-informed won't prove to be all that relevant.
