Longread of the week

17 Aug

For those of you like me who heartily backed Obama but find yourself disillusioned and generally bummed about his presidency thus far, here is your new anthem. Pro-tip: after re-reading, remind yourself that collapsed economies take time to recover and Obama has surrounded himself with experts many times over, and thus they have a much better shot at figuring this thing out than you do. At least that’s been my mental plan of attack. Hooray for patience?

(Also, for those interested: here’s a counterpoint on TNR. I couldn’t make much sense of it but the author is clearly smarter than me and you may be too, so have at it.)
