Salena Zito | Scandals Erode Politically Fatigued Public’s Trust

A mere two weeks after winning, President Obama was back on the warpath in  Pennsylvania with a speech claiming that Republicans would “spoil Christmas by  driving the country over the fiscal cliff.”

Immediately after that, he campaigned relentlessly for a gun-control bill and  against the NRA and its supporters. When he lost that effort, his response was  anger and blame, calling it a “shameful” day for politics. “The gun lobby and  its allies willfully lied about the bill,” he said from the White House Rose  Garden, in a voice rising with agitation.

Then came the scandals.
