MSNBC Contributor Fineman: Was 'Mistake' For Obama to Urge Voters to Judge Him on His Performance in Office

Discussing how President Obama should craft his 2012 reelection campaign theme, MSNBC contributors Howard Fineman offered that President Obama made a "mistake" in his freshman year in office in saying voters should judge his term by his performance in office.

Because the economy is recovering under Obama's stewardship, Fineman posited on the May 11 edition of "Hardball," Obama must run on a theme of "values" not as a referendum on his track record.
