The Lame Duck

Actually, a “Lame-Duck President” is a President who either has just lost a bid for re-election or is ineligible for re-election.

But Obama’s recent congressional election losses, coupled with political failures abroad have led some people to begin thinking of him as being a one-term “Lame Duck”.

So do I.

Of course that could just be wishful thinking.
