"The Cairo speech was an advertisement for Mr. Obama that won praise from many in his audience. But it provided dim illumination and no serious analysis - and, far worse, it exposed superficial thinking by the president about important subjects. In the words of an old political quip: Deep down, it was shallow. It raises the question of whether Mr. Obama can manage major problems that he seems not to understand."
Who said that today?
Answer, "Douglas J. Feith, a former undersecretary of defense for policy (2001-2005)"
I.e. one of the Bush administration officials who created the "major problems" that Obama has to deal with today. The spectacular nerve that it takes for this ignorant, malicious man to speak these words staggers the imagination. Perhaps, Mr. Feith, we should prefer the "serious analysis" that led us to abandon the hunt for Osama Bin Laden in order to attack Iraq?
Obama's speech has already paid off in contributing to the rejection by the Lebanese people of Hezbollah, and has produced a marked deterioration in Ahmadinejad's position in Iran. That's more managing of middle east problems than you guys put together in eight years. So it would be best for everyone if you would just be thankful that you are not in prison, and go away.
