And Obama Said...

On issue after issue, Obama tells us that he is not naïve. Then, on issue after issue, he tacks Bushward before his naiveté causes irreversible damage. I suppose we should be thankful for the “hasty” nature of the president’s mistakes. For the sooner he puts his naiveté to the test the sooner we can return to what works.

Flynt Leverett and Hillary Mann Leverett’s profoundly wrongheaded op-ed in the Sunday New York Times did contain this valuable nugget:

Why has President Obama put himself in a position from which he cannot deliver on his own professed interest in improving relations with the Islamic Republic? Some diplomatic veterans who have spoken with him have told us that the president said that he did not realize, when he came to office, how “hard” the Iran problem would be.


And he thinks he knows a thing or two about the Arab-Israel conflict?
