A weird suggestion for Obama's relations to his voter base

Yes, a lot of the Republican base really sees him this way

I was channel-flipping Sunday evening and I heard Republican "strategist" (aka, hack commentator) Alex Castellanos on some infotainment show saying that President Obama needs to dump his base. How does a politician go about dumping his base voters? Wouldn't that mean, you know, switching to the Republican Party? Obama may be sold on the neoliberal gospel of deregulation and "free trade." But I really don't see him switching to the Republican Party. Since a large part of their base think he is the Antichrist.
