    coffee joe and old al hunt:

    SCARBOROUGH: So, we are at a strange point, where the president is not even six months into his second term, and he already looks like a lame duck to many people who are top analysts.

    HUNT: Yeah, this is a familiar pattern sometimes in second terms. But if you look back at six months ago, and where Obama thought he might be today, I hate to use this analogy, it’s painful, but he is like my Washington Nationals. Expectations are pretty high, and he’s just barely keeping his head above water. He won a pretty impressive reelection. He thought republicans would be less resistant. I agree with Sam’s examples, but the sequestration itself—

    SCARBOROUGH: Isn’t that fascinating, Al, that, I remember a lot of us talking to the president before, talking to the president’s people. They really believe that the reelection would make Republicans lay down their swords. And bend them into plowshares. And it just didn’t happen.

    nyt: obama says obamacare working just fine (just like the private sector)

    where can he go, what can he say?

    time mag:

    After the first 100 days of his second term, President Obama just can’t stop talking about the limits of his own power.

    At a press conference Tuesday morning, he said he wanted a smooth roll out for ObamaCare, but then added, “even if we do everything perfectly, there’ll still be, you know, glitches and bumps.” He reaffirmed his desire to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility, but said “Congress determined that they would not let us close it.” He argued for an end to the sequester, only to add that he doesn’t have enough sway with Congress to make it happen. “You seem to suggest that somehow these folks over there have no responsibilities, and that my job is to somehow get them to behave,” he said to one reporter. “That’s their job!”

    In the White House briefing room, the President stayed largely on defense, ticking through the topics offered to him by reporters by explaining all that he could not do. Asked if he still had “the juice” to get the rest of his agenda through Congress, Obama smiled. “Maybe I should just pack up and go home, golly,” he responded from the White House podium before paraphrasing a quote from Mark Twain. “Rumors of my demise may be a little exaggerated at this point.”

    The first 100 days have not exactly gone according to plan: Gun control measures in which he invested his political capital died weeks ago, immigration reform faces a perilous path in the House of Representatives, budget and deficit reduction talks are mired in slow moving back room negotiations, and the sequester remains in place with a few targeted exceptions. As nearly every legislative priority has stalled, his approval rating has fallen below 50 percent.
