Newsweek on Obama

There are two excellent pieces available on the Newsweek website.

The first is written by the British historian Niall Fergusson (who has Republican sympathies) examine why Obama deserves to be defeated in November. There are lots of examples of what Fergusson refers to as broken promises.

The inability of Obama to deliver what he intended to is also the theme of this weeks KAL cartoon in the economist.

 

The second piece worth a read in Newsweek is the suggestion that ‘Barack needs Bill’ the piece is looking at the decline of the ‘big tent pro- business’ Clintonian style party and how the ideological shift of the Democrats towards the left in recent year may hurt Obama in 2012.
