A.B. STODDARD: The problem is that the president is giving Americans the sense as he gives up on Congress, he's kind of giving up on his job. They know he's bolting from the building to go to Starbucks and Chipotle. He's getting bored in the cocoon. He's planning his post-presidency. There have been reports about how he wants to perhaps move to New York. He's having lots of dinner parties where he doesn't talk about policies or politics but the NBA playoffs. Anything but his job. And as he has all these difficulties flare up, international crises that are deteriorating, a stubborn economy that doesn't get better, he seems like he's giving up on the job, not just on the gridlock in Congress. And that's really troublesome for the American people, not only because of all the problems we have but because we're with him for another more than two years.
