By CNN's Jack Cafferty:
If President Barack Obama went to a fortuneteller this week, he might ask for his money back.
In his Washington Post column titled "Pileup at the White House," Dana Milbank writes how Commerce Secretary John Bryson's weekend car crashes - and possible felony hit-and-run charge - are just the latest in a string of bad news for the president.
The list is long.
Stalled job growth, the Wisconsin recall defeat and Attorney General Eric Holder facing a contempt-of-Congress citation over lawmakers’ demands for documents in the "Fast and Furious" gunrunning investigation.
Bill Clinton contradicting the president, Mitt Romney raising more money, Congress squawking about national security leaks they say are coming from the White House and the president himself stupidly saying that the "private sector is doing fine." Really?
Milbank writes that all this adds up to one of the worst stretches of Obama's presidency: "There is a creeping sense that the bottom has fallen out and that there may be no second term."
Milbank says that top officials in the Obama administration privately say they are no longer expecting much economic improvement before the election.
Plus, there could be more bad news for Obama around the bend:
The Supreme Court is expected to rule any day now on the fate of the Affordable Care Act - widely known as “Obamacare” - as well as Arizona's controversial immigration law. Obama has a lot riding on both of these decisions.
With less than five months to go before the election, there's no doubt the president could use some good news.
Working in his favor is the fact that polls show voters like him and he has high favorability ratings, but that might not be enough to prevent him from his own car wreck come November 6.
Here’s my question to you: How much trouble is President Obama in?
