Quote of the Day

Frank Rich, Freedom's Just Another Word
It’s a mystery why a candidate so attuned to the nation’s pulse, most especially on the matter of war, has grown tone deaf in office. On Tuesday, Obama asked the country to turn the page on Iraq as if that were as easy as, say, voting for him in 2008. His brief rhetorical pivot from the war to the economy only raised the question of why the crisis of joblessness has not merited a prime-time Oval Office speech of its own. 

I couldn't have said it any better. Obama's ineffectiveness on the economy is frustrating, and his position on the war is indistinguishable from his predecessor. I recently read a blog post in which the author accidentally wrote Bush instead of Obama. I couldn't help but laugh. I thought it was quite fitting.
