A Busy Year
Check out this piece. I have been pretty frustrated with the coverage of Obama, but I guess this is what happens when expectations are high. Given the free pass Bush had, it is quite annoying that Obama gets taken to task for minor stuff and we lose sight of what an awful set of cards he inherited. I don't think he handled everything well, and I wish his economic team had fewer ties to the folks who got us into much of this mess. Still, his foreign policies have largely been smart, nuanced, and have helped to reverse the slide in American influence.
