Big Important Piece of the Day: Walter Russell Mead on Fred-6

Important note to all future denizens of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue: Those whom the gods wish to destroy, they first compare to Abraham Lincoln.  Comparisons to Washington, Lincoln, or to either Roosevelt, if any, should come from other people, never from you or from anyone on your payroll — and preferably should come late in a presidential term, not when the incumbent still has that shiny new president smell.

There’s an epidemic now of repentance from Obama voters.  That isn’t me.  My eyes were open in the voting booth and I had a pretty good idea of what we were getting when I voted for him.  I have always thought he was too liberal for the American people and too inexperienced to know it.  I hoped things wouldn’t come to this point, but thought it was likely and still thought he was the best of the two available picks. You vote for the candidates you have.
