Kirsten Powers: I've Given Up Trying To Explain Why Obama Does What He Does (RealClearPolitics)

MEGYN KELLY: Why is [Obama] out there saying, "I don't know why they're saying that, this is my policies that are going to be on the ballot." If he's okay with it, why is he saying, "They can say whatever they want to, it's still all me that's going to be on the ballot."

KIRSTEN POWERS: I've kind of given up trying to explain why he does some of the things he does because it doesn't make sense. Because I do think he understands what they're doing. The only thing that I can say is I think he is simultaneously trying to get the voters out there who do like him, and there are voters out there who do like him, African-American voters actually like President Obama and he needs them to turn out for these candidates. And so it's this very fine line of them distancing but also making sure those Obama voters turn out.
