Communities of color are mired in an economic depression. Yet the president struggles to publicly acknowledge it. The choice not to do so presents Obama with a political problem when he can least afford it.
The worry is that Obama has an “enthusiasim gap” amongst key elements of his 2008 electoral base. As D.C. political guru Charlie Cook notes, it’s especially large among Latinos.

The number one issue for Latinos, like all Americans, is jobs and the economy.
