Many on conservative forums (like Hannity's, Drudge, etc) are saying that Obama is already a lame duck president, that there is infighting in the Dem party and as a result his political capital is spent.
Do you guys agree?

I was reading a book on Jimmy Carter's presidency and it seems that even by December 1977 the American public according to polls had lost confidance in his ability to solve the nation's problems; By the beginning of 1978 the Democratic Party was already planning on Ted Kennedy running against him in 1980...So perhaps history is repeating itself...

Whatever good will he amassed is fading fast.His lies, his dithering on Afghanistan..he was elected on a raf of promises that he couldnt keep even if he tried and now he is paying for the fact that he was nothng else than a load of hot air.

Obama is the laughingstock on both sides of the pond.

He's finished.

He still has the support of our traitorous press corps.

He's working on losing that, and when those jackals turn on him, his goose is cooked.

He is a lame brain and he is working on being a lame duck.

When Rev Wright first became news, I said Obama was toast. You are so right, NEVER underestimate.
A lamefuck, maybe.

Is Obama already a lameduck? Oh, lame DUCK. I was going to weigh in on whether the question should be 'did he even have one?" We already see he doesn't have a pair.;)

No, President Obama is by no means a lame duck. His numbers are definately falling, his base is weakening, but unless he is challenged by a strong Democratic candidate in the next election he can not be counted out.
