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."
