Controversies knock Obama off balance

Washington (CNN) - History shows that second terms in the White House can be much tougher than first ones, and that is proving true so far for President Barack Obama.

Less than five months in, Obama and his administration appear knocked off balance by a barrage of controversies and criticisms exacerbating the bitter political battles that marked his first four years in office.

    The only people in denial here are republikkklans, despite their efforts to sabotage this presiident, to make hime a one termer,to bring up imaginary scandals.The country is back on track economically and the gop did nothing.the only failure i see here is the gop they fail to do anything for this country i think all of them (gop) should be tried in a court of law for defrauding tax payers they are getting a salary for doing nothing.

    @Anthony-You must be joking, improvment in the economy and jobs. ?maybe part time and seasonal work(hardly a good job). Higher taxes on the working middle class is not a sign of a good economy
