Today's Meme: Obama is Giving Up

AB Stoddard offered that opinion on Bret Baier's show.

She added that the president is "getting bored in the cocoon," "bolting from the building to go to Starbucks and Chipotle," and "planning his post-presidency." Stoddard also reported that the president has at times preferred to talk about the NBA playoffs instead of "policies or politics" because he'd rather talk about "anything but his job."

I'm glad she made that point.

Andrew Malcolm said something similar, though not exactly similar.

Tuesday Obama called his Cabinet over again for a photo-op, so media could hear him issue instructions like a real executive.

"I wanted," Obama declared for the cameras, "to bring the Cabinet together today to underscore for them my belief I think shared by most Americans that we canít wait for Congress."

At every opportunity, Obama repeats his vow to circumvent the legislative branch, despite court warnings and a threatened House lawsuit over unrestrained executive actions. "Sue me!" he defiantly told one crowd Tuesday.

Here's what such bluster means in politics, as well as families: He's in trouble. And he knows it. Like a lame duck puffing up and flapping its wings to cover its weakness. A dead giveaway.

Zogby looks at the polls and asks, "Is it all over for Obama?"

President Obama's approval numbers are in the cellar, a new Quinnipiac University survey just dubbed him the worst president in six decades, so maybe it's no surprise that analyst and pollster John Zogby is asking: "Is it all over for him?"

Armed with new numbers that are depressing to an already deflated White House, Zogby on Wednesday found that most don't believe that Obama can lead the country...

"Mr. Obama finds himself in the uncomfortable position where every age group, independents, and whites all agree that the public has given up on his ability to accomplish anything before the end of his term," said Zogby in releasing his latest numbers.

"In short, we see a president in full salvage mode. He is not only racing for his legacy but for his relevancy," Zogby added.

So: Americans are weary of President Obama and Obama is weary of President Obama.

Oh: And Charles Krauthammer says Obama's checked out, too.
