Media Frets Over Fading Obama Agenda: “He needs wins and he needs them soon. There’s no way around that”

Forget the good of the nation. According to The Hill, the most urgent concern six months into Obama’s second term is that poor Obama gets to do some victory laps.

Six months into his second term, the momentum that President Obama gained from his reelection win is a fading memory.

Few could have foreseen this White House struggling so much after Obama’s convincing 332-206 electoral vote victory over Mitt Romney last November.

Anyone who hasn’t been guzzling the Obama Koolaid knew a second term would be a disaster not unlike his first term. We guess they mean “few” in the media saw this trainwreck coming.

“He needs wins and he needs them soon. There’s no way around that,” said one top Democratic strategist who routinely communicates with the White House. “I think just about everyone realizes that.”

Um, no, not everyone realizes that.

Obama’s year to date has been marked by a combination of failures, distractions and uncertainties.

A push for gun control in the wake of the mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school last December came to nothing.

Controversies over the IRS and, more recently, National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden absorbed administration energy and time.

The IRS scandal is merely a controversy? Really? Alas, there’s still hope from the so-called reporters, who actually believes the economy is improving.

The economy is improving, albeit more slowly than the president would like. If the recovery gains strength, it will lift Obama and the general mood of the nation.

Recovery? What recovery?

And it probably doesn’t help that he’s golfing while Egypt implodes.

    This. They are still, first and foremost, cheerleaders for their dear leader. They will NOT do their stated jobs so long as someone with a (D) is in office. They will not question expanding the IRS for example. If a rethuglickkkkkkkan was in this position, such an action would be a non-starter.

    Alas, the stupid party remains stupid. The republicans in the gang of eight should have done a press conference expressing dismay over obama playing political games with his own, precious obamacare. Then renounce the immigration bill, since it’s now obvious that the left will never honor the security provisions. But they’re still posturing and counting on the House to do the dirty work.

    Always remember that the MSM is customer service for Team Obama. They sold you the turd and now blame the failures on user ignorance

    The media bubble has to be worse than the overall DC bubble. At least there are a substantial number of conservatives in DC. I’d wager there are reporters who do not know a single conservative.
