    People don't expect the POTUS to be the end all/ be all answer to everything.  People are practical.  But Bush got elected because he was perceived to be a better leader than his opponents even though it wasn't necessarily true.   Obama's perception went from expectation of a strong leader in 2008 to the perception of an Uncle Tom negotiating our health care away with big Pharm just to get a deal in 2010.   In 2012, He got relected on the perception that he was better leader than Romney.  

    The GOP's killing itself because it is perceived to be completely out of touch with mainstream America and the rest of the world.  It's perception comes from the tea party and it's refusal to raise income tax rates on the rich.  

    The Dems should do everything they can to keep painting that perception, and be seen as leaders representing what the people want, not what rich fatcat members of Corporate America want.
