James Lewis in the American Thinker takes Obama's measure:
Last night I saw upon the stairA little president who wasn't thereHe wasn't there again todayOh, how I wish he'd go away
Barack Obama loves to preen and parade his "higher" morality. But when it comes to Iranians struggling against ugly tyranny or the people of North Korean just trying to fill their bellies with food, our little president just isn't there. Nowhere to be found. Chances are that behind the scenes the mullahs are promising Obama a glorious peace agreement that will allow him to parade his gargantuan ego around the world one more time. They are Persian rug sellers over there, who know all about hard bargaining. They've got his number: He's a pushover. Obama will trade personal glory against the freedom of Iran's people any day of the week.With at least 3.5 more years of this to go: How much damage can one man do in that time?
