By MICHAEL GOODWIN –
If you want to start a fight with a room full of liberals, insist that Barack Obama is the worst president in recent history. The blowback about George W. Bush and Iraq will drown you out, but here’s a way to quiet the crowd: Insist that Obama’s second term is the worst term in recent presidential history.
There can be no argument there.
Each week hits a new low point, and the only debate is about which moment was the worst. Last week featured the massive security breach by Edward Snowden and Obama’s pathetic Hamlet act over Syria.
We don’t yet know which caused more harm to American interests and eroded more trust in government. Either way, the president is lost in a fog of his own making.
Snowden, on a private contractor’s payroll for only a few months, was able to download a mountain of classified material and flee the country. After news accounts revealed the surveillance programs, he popped up in Hong Kong to out himself as the source and praise China. Washington gumshoes don’t have a clue about where he is or how he got access to so much data.
