Obama Hits a Low Spot

"Not yet six months into his second term, Barack Obama's presidency is in a dead zone," Politico reports.

"A combination of familiar Washington intransigence and a more recent run of bad news and political setbacks have left him with less influence over his circumstances -- and more buffeted by factors beyond his control -- than at any time in his five years in office."

"But in a damning appraisal, a wide variety of congressional Democrats and presidential scholars said in interviews that there is another decisive factor behind Obama's current paralysis: his own failure to use the traditional tools of the presidency to exert his will."
