Obama on the Flying Trapeze

Rex Murphy on President Obama's first six months, in the The Globe and Mail:

We've seen him in action for a bit more than six months. What we can say with confidence, now that we have the evidence of his actions, is that had he run on (a) transforming the U.S. economy by massive federal government intervention, (b) taking an owner's stake in the automobile industry, (c) transforming the rules of America's energy economy, (d) instituting a national health-care system - all of these simultaneously and in the centre of a financial meltdown - Barack Obama wouldn't merely have lost the election, he wouldn't have got as many votes as gnarly old Ross Perot did in an election long past. He wouldn't, in other words, have beaten a bad-tempered, egotistical spoiler.

Buyer's remorse yet, Obama voters? If not, I've got a nice little bridge to sell you. I also feel compelled to point out that we're 30 months into a Democrat controlled congress.

Read it all.
