The calendar says President Obama has over three years left in the White House, but he is already irrelevant in much of the world. From Russia to China to Egypt, Iran and Syria, allies and adversaries alike are tuning him out. They regard both his threats and his promises as hollow.

Support at home is shrinking, too. Gallup says approval for his handling of the economy sank to 35 percent and ObamaCare grows ever more unpopular.

He still can count on his party’s control of the Senate, but next year’s election could change that.

No wonder the first family got a second dog. Every president needs a friend and Bo probably got tired of him, too.
