What comes next as Obamacare ruins Obama's presidency? -- By Mark Tapscott, The Washington Examiner

Obamacare is endlessly referred to as President Obama's "signature domestic achievement," but six more weeks like the last half dozen could change that to "ruined his presidency."

Consider Washington Examiner White House correspondent Susan Crabtree's report that the latest CNN/ORC International survey found that "for the first time, a majority of Americans at 53 percent believe the president is not honest and trustworthy."

The survey also found, Crabtree said, that only 40 percent of those surveyed "say Obama can manage the government effectively." That figure is based on responses to how Obama is viewed in terms of nine separate personal characteristics.

Worse is coming

But those numbers, as bad as they are for the president's political prospects, only skim the surface of the damage being wrought by Obamacare.

Examiner's Chief Political Correspondent Byron York dug deep into the data and concluded that Obama's problem isn't merely that Obamacare's rollout has been disastrous but that it has and will continue to inflict irreversible damage to his credibility.
