At a speech earlier this year in Miami, President […]

Obama’s Fall from Grace

Reportage of last week’s Nelson Mandela funeral reveals clearly enough that President Obama has reached the point in his tenure where everything ceases to go right — when even the most serious and determined efforts deteriorate into a hash, or worse, a joke.  This happens to everyone in public life eventually, politicians above all.  The […]
