Mediaite’s Noah Rothman to John Gibson: Obama ‘Already Showing the Signs of a Lame Duck’

Mediaite’s Noah Rothman joined conservative radio host John Gibson to talk about President Obama‘s poor handling of Syria. Gibson brought up Rothman’s column “Will Democrats Forgive Obama for Blowing His Second Term?”, and, frankly, Rothman still firmly believes they won’t. He went so far as to suggest that Obama has wasted so much political capital since his reelection, he’s already in lame duck mode.

Rothman said Obama became “captive to events” this year, arguing that he wasted too much capital on gun control, and as a result of not being able to use any on Syria, “he’s already showing the signs of a lame duck.”

He allowed that something significant could happen to shake things up before 2016, but at this point he won’t be able to get anything big done the Democratic party was hoping for, like immigration reform, and “his legacy will consist of Obamacare.”

Rothman also brought up another column he did on U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power and liberals now apparently learning that “smart power was never all that smart to begin with.”
