The pessimism out there is palpable, and for good reason. They’re all right. Richard Fernandez: Olympus has fallen. Bryan Preston: We are so screwed. Stephen Green (VodkaPundit): Pastis in our time. National Review: On Syria, from bad to worse. Victor Davis Hanson: Putin – Saruman Come Alive.* Peggy Noonan: Team Obama, people who know nothing – really nothing – about history. Kori Schake (Foreign Policy): Obama speech remarkably – alarmingly – flabby. Ann Coulter: Syrial losers. Jackie Gingrich Cushman: Obama on Syria: Following from behind. Hal G.P. Colebatch (American Spectator): Obama as Queeg: A few cruise missiles short in the leadership arsenal.
Doing less with less.
