The word of the day is “decline”:
- If you read nothing else for the rest of the year about the Obama presidency and the direction it is taking the country, read Krauthammer in this week’s Weekly Standard. No, really – go read it. I’ll wait.
- Riffing on Krauthammer’s theme, Mark Steyn dishes up lugubrious drollery as only he can.
- Introducing America to the term “downward mobility,” Robert Samuelson reminds us that Obama is, to turn a phrase, taking his eye off the ball when he tries to reform health care. He finishes with this killer: “Some call this “reform”; no one should call it progress.”
- And despite all the talk of regression, there is still a bull market for the President’s self-regard.
