Obama is Ruining His Presidency and His Party
- One of my favorite quotes about politics comes from Henry Kissinger in his book Years of Upheaval, his memoir of the Ford presidency: ďA statesmanís duty is to bridge the gap between his vision and his nationís experience. If his vision gets too far out ahead of his nationís experience, he will lose his mandate. But if he hews too close to the conventional, he will lose control over events.Ē
Now, at once, we see both happening to President Barack Obama.
