President Barack Obama will hold an end-of-the year news conference at the White House Friday afternoon.
    
Obama is likely to face questions about the rough rollout of his health care law and his trouble passing big legislative initiatives like immigration reform through a divided Congress.
    
At the end of his fifth year in office, Obama's job approval and personal favorability ratings have fallen to around the lowest point of his presidency.
    
Obama will depart later for his home state of Hawaii for his annual Christmas vacation trip. It's the first time in his presidency that his departure plans have not been delayed by legislative action in Washington.
