Not just a lame duck anymore. CBSNews (06.28.07) (link in original):
"President Bush was in no mood for questions about his stunning defeat on immigration.

It's not just that this is a clear rebuke of his confident prediction 2½ weeks ago ...

'I believe we can get it done,' he said. 'I’ll see you at the bill signing.'"

Do Bush Defeats Signal End Of Influence?

"... It's that the defeat was sealed by his own party. After personally lobbying many Republicans, more than three dozen defected."

"'The failure of the immigration bill means that George Bush is beyond being a lame-duck president,' says CBS News analyst Douglas Brinkley. 'He's a 'dead-duck' president.'"
