Abstract

This year has not been a good one for President Barack Obama and his administration. James D. Boys takes a look at 2013’s policy fumbles, which look even worse in light of the promise brought by his re-election barely one year ago. He writes that the difficulties with the rollout of the Affordable Care Act, the lack of direction on Syria and foreign policy in general, as well as lost battles on gun control and the government’s shutdown are all likely to harm Obama’s political legacy. Elections and continuing Congressional gridlock in 2014 may see the President move even further into lame duck territory.
