Well, he's sucking salt now across the board, even on what used to be his strongest issue: foreign policy.
According to a new CBS News/New York Times poll released today, just 34 percent of Americans approve of Obama's handling of foreign policy issues, the lowest ever tracked in the survey’s history, while a whopping 58 percent disapprove. The foreign policy disapproval figure is up 10 points since August. So in just one month, Obama is increasingly perceived as weak and indecisive---and has essentially lost the confidence of much of the American people in his ability to manage our national security and place in the world.
Not good. Not good for him. Not good for his party.
Not good for the nation.

Eight days after the September 11 attacks in 2001, an unknown state senator in Illinois published his thoughts. They explain much of his later behavior as Commander-in-Chief. Please check out my column on this in "The Washington Times":
Today, we remember. We remember two attacks: one committed on this date in 2001 against the United States in the United States, and the second committed on this day in 2012 against the United States in Benghazi, Libya.
We remember the victims, their hopes, their dreams, their lives cut far too short.
We remember their families, who have suffered unimaginable losses.
We remember the pilots and the flight crews, whose courage was unsurpassed on 9/11/2001.
We remember the emergency responders, whose heroism and sacrifice were unparalleled.
We remember our leadership on 9/11/2001, their grace under fire, and their determination to protect and defend us.
We remember the bravery of Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods, and Sean Smith as they were killed trying desperately to save their fellow Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, from the terrorist attack in Benghazi.
We remember the enemy, who they are, what they are, what they believe, and what their goal continues to be.
We remember that the attacks were acts of war.
We remember that the war is still with us, whether we like it or not.
Today, we remember.
We remember always.
