In 2007, Walter Reed Was The Army's Wakeup Call

Long a model for top-notch care for presidents and soldiers alike, Walter Reed Army Medical Center became a byword for bureaucratic bungling in 2007. Army officials are still addressing the failures revealed by an investigation that found wounded soldiers left to fend for themselves.

Is Libya the Cornerstone of an Obama Doctrine?

Michael O'Hanlon, USAT
Recent developments in Libya promise to help the Libyan people a good deal, even as the potential for protracted and deadly urban combat cannot yet be dismissed. There's another beneficiary, though: President Obama, who can now point to Libya as a signature example of how to lead multilaterally, encourage others to do more, and avoid the Hobson's choice of doing it all alone or retreating into defeatism or isolationism.Some might even call this an Obama Doctrine "” an accomplishment that the president can use (or that others can use for or against him) to explain his...

Obama and Libya: Scant Political Rewards

Alexis Simendinger, RCP
President Obama was "gutsy" to order the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan, and "vindicated" after his "gamble" to back Libyan rebels who ousted Col. Moammar Gaddafi after 42 years of oppressive rule, according to praise from various commentators, including some of his sharpest critics. Yet, even the president's least-debated achievements as head of state are unlikely to tip the political scales in November 2012 for the simple reason that the prosperity of families in, say, Tripoli, Iowa, outweighs Americans'...

Obama Circling Back to the Iceberg

Ralph Reiland, Pittsburgh Trib-Review
Only 26 percent of the public approve of President Barack Obama's handling of the economy in the latest Gallup poll, conducted Aug. 11-14, while a whopping 71 percent disapprove. That's down from Obama's previous low point of 35 percent approval on this top issue.The public's growing dissatisfaction shouldn't be surprising. Going back to 1890, reports the National Bureau of Economic Research, the only U.S. president with a worse record than Obama in job creation in his first two-and-a-half years in office, measured in terms of percentage change, was Herbert Hoover,...
