At least Cato Vice President Gene Healy thinks so.
In an interview on Obama's 50th day in office, Healy explained why the president should consider staying out of the spotlight:
The president wasn’t supposed to be a national guardian angel. He was supposed to be a limited constitutional officer whose main job was faithful execution of the laws. And I don’t see a lot of evidence that Barack Obama’s omnipresence is really helping him or the country.
