Unless he changes the trajectory, President Barack Obama is "on the road to irrelevancy," says Matthew Dowd, former political consultant for President George W. Bush.

Obama finds himself in same place in the polls as Bush was after Hurricane Katrina, Dowd said Sunday on ABC's "This Week."

"At that point in time it was basically the beginning of the end of President Bush's presidency," Dowd said. Obama is a big fan of history, Dodd added, and has taken note of what happened to Bush after what many said was a botched response to the suffering in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005.

Obama was already defending his unpopular healthcare law when a series of scandals hit in the spring, including the IRS targeting conservative groups and the revelations of the National Security Agency spying on Americans. Added to that, since August Obama has been wrestling with a response to Syrian use of chemical weapons on civilians.

"This president is fast becoming irrelevant in Washington," Dowd said.
