Liberals claim Obama "resigned himself to a reactive presidency"

Some of the President Obama's own supporters are doubting his political powers and ability to get something done in Washington in his second term.

Dana Milbank in the Washington Post writes:

"It's the president's job to lead, and to bang heads if necessary, regardless of any "permission structure." Obama seemed oddly like a spectator, as if he had resigned himself to a reactive presidency."

And at a news conference, the president seemed to be taken aback when asked if he's still relevant now that Congress is blocking his agenda at every turn.

Reporter: Do you still have the juice to get the rest of the agenda through congress?

Obama: "Well, if you put it that way, Jonathan, maybe I should just pack up and go home, Golly. You seem to suggest that somehow these folks over there have no responsibilities and that my job is to somehow get them to behave. That's their job."

But when it came to identifying the suspects in the Boston bombings, it took manpower to identify the Tsarnaev brothers.

So why didn't the technology work?

CNN's Tom Foreman has the story.

FBI releases photos of three men wanted for questioning in Benghazi attack

After an avalanche of criticism for the fact that no one has been charged or held accountable - today the FBI released photos of three men they want to question about the September 11th attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

The men were on the grounds of the consulate during the attack and may be able to provide information. But the question is, why did it take nearly eight months to get these photos out to the public?
