Video: MSNBC panel says ‘Obama struggling to run government’

When Rahm Emanuel advised back in the early days of the Obama presidency that you should “never let a serious crisis go to waste,” he should have probably clarified for his boss — who had never held a real job — that you first need to get ahead of the curve and control the crisis.

That Obama has now begun to allowed the many crises he faces to control him is evident not only by his low approval ratings but by recognition of the same by MSNBC commentators. Here is “Daily Rundown” host Chuck Todd confabbing with frequent guest Mike Barnicle. Neither has a terribly optimistic view of Obama’s presidency as it crumbles before their eyes.
