Obama’s courage not in doubt. His judgment sucks.

President Obama, defending his tax-cut deal: This is the public option debate all over again. So I pass a signature piece of legislation where we finally get health care for all Americans, something that Democrats have been fighting for for a hundred years, but because there was a provision in there that they didn’t get [...]

Age of Reagan Continues?

I used to believe that the Age of Reagan had ended. The financial collapse and all the pain and hysteria it caused, I thought, would surely change the prevailing mindset that had ruled over public policy in this country since Reagan.  The election of Barack Obama was a signal that people were finally ready for [...]

Obama: stick a fork in him?

“Whatever is going on inside the White House, from the outside it looks like moral collapse — a complete failure of purpose and loss of direction.”  -Paul Krugman “The captors [Republicans] will win this battle, if they haven’t already by the time you read this, because Obama has seemingly surrendered his once-considerable abilities to act, [...]

An alternative economic model: Germany

Living in the USA, it’s difficult to escape the influence of a constant stream of commentary by our pundits and political leaders telling our citizens that “you must suffer now, to avoid greater suffering tomorrow.”  The offshoring of jobs and the weakening of unions is required for our firms to be competitive, we’re told, because [...]

McChrystal, Petraeus… same futile war

Multiple years of military futility, with ever-mounting casualties and no evidence of any progress, are insufficient reasons for Obama to change anything substantive about his Afghanistan policy, which amounts to: keep spending money we don’t have, keep sending troops into harm’s way when they aren’t actually making anything any better, and keep telling us that [...]

Obama’s Oil Spill Speech is a Dud

Update: James Fallows says the speech failed the Eisenhower, Carter, and Obama tests. Before President Obama gave his oil spill speech, Marc Ambinder wondered “. . . in his 20 minute address to the nation, will President Obama go big? Or will he go small?” Sadly, Obama chose to go small.  After acknowledging the root [...]

Obama’s problem

Daniel Larison summarizes the poll evidence that suggests Obama’s problem is that he isn’t liberal enough.

Good news from Washington, maybe

And it’s about time. Just when I started to admit to myself that maybe the Obama administration really doesn’t stand for anything — a forgivable sentiment after watching it deal away just about everything that was worthwhile about health care reform — the President tells us that he intends to fight for commonsense banking regulations. [...]

Terrorized

The failed attempt to blow up an airplane on Christmas is rekindling a fear of terrorism in the U.S., at least if you believe a lot of the media coverage of the reaction to the incident.  This is, I think, unfortunate.  Our fear of terrorism has been excessive, unreasonable, and irrational since 9-11, and it [...]

Fading hope

Barack Obama has been president for almost a year.  He’s had enough time to make some decisions, and to set a trajectory for his presidency.  How has he been doing? I really don’t want to say “shitty.” I know he has more than three years left.  I know the nation can’t turn on a dime, [...]
