Lame Duck Obama

Relative to: Walter Russell Mead, A President at Bay.

In the wake of the Republican landslide midterm elections, a great deal of mediocre-to-awful writing has appeared on the situation that President Obama finds himself in for the remainder of his term. Searching through the muck, I found WR Mead’s post to be among the best, and I highly recommend the read.

Mead discusses the unrealistic expectations put upon Obama and America’s love affair with candidate Obama, but he also looks squarely, and fairly, at the failures for which President Obama and his administration are responsible.With an eye towards history, and what can yet be done by President Obama, the new Republican wave entering Washington would do well to heed Mead’s conclusion.
