Controversies around US government surveillance of telephones and the Internet, the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of tea party groups, Justice Department snooping into journalists’ phone records, and the US response to last September’s terror attack in Benghazi, Libya, have put the Obama administration on the defensive.

All of the above cuts into Obama’s “political capital,” that elusive commodity that fuels a president's second-term mojo.
I call it the Curse of David Drit and Jacob Lew...Ever since that chancy meet in Oahu, Hawaii, the Declining Fate has set in!!! The rest is History!!
