A New Nadir Merits Call For One Term Presidency

One and done: To be a great president, Obama should not seek reelection in 2012.  WP. 

But it is clear, we believe, that the president has largely lost the consent of the governed. The midterm elections were effectively a referendum on the Obama presidency. And even if it was not an endorsement of a Republican vision for America, the drubbing the Democrats took was certainly a vote of no confidence in Obama and his party. The president has almost no credibility left with Republicans and little with independents.

When even the liberal Washington Post puts up an op ed calling Obama to settle for one term, presidential performance has to have reached a new nadir.    

“No excuses.”
