Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) February 04, 2009 -- Political analyst Earl Ofari Hutchinson in his new book How Obama Won predicted that tough economic times and decisions would hold deep peril for President Barack Obama's administration. He assesses the peril and other decisions that will pose colossal challenges to the Obama administration in his new book.
Political analyst Earl Ofari Hutchinson in his new book, How Obama Won , predicted that the economy would hold deep peril for the new Obama administration. Hutchinson reviews in his book how polls repeatedly showed during the campaign that the economy; or rather the train wreck of the economy was really the only thing on voter's minds.
Hutchinson also told why and how economic woes would continue to be the only thing on American's minds after the election and that they would judge Obama's performance on how quickly and effectively he dealt with the economic crisis . Hutchinson assesses whether Obama's vow to cut taxes for the middle-class, clean up Wall Street's mess, and create lots of jobs for everybody would do much too stem America's economic worries. Hutchinson shows how the economy continues to bear out the old political truism that it's the economy stupid that wins or loses presidential elections as well as makes or breaks presidential administrations.
In How Obama Won , Hutchinson, reminds that from day one of campaign 2008 the enshrined article of political faith was that voters were so furious at Bush for causing massive plant closings, farm failures, corporate bungling, fraud and corruption, the housing collapse, soaring gas prices, and the wholesale flight of jobs to the far corners of the planet.
The fear and fury at the economic misery will grow worse during the early days of the Obama administration. The test, says Hutchinson, is whether Obama can reduce those fears. How Obama Won is a blueprint for understanding how he'll try.
