The ‘Education’ of Obama

by Jonah Goldberg

I know it’s already been widely discussed, but I really do think everyone should read the Peter Baker profile of Obama. It is definitive document of sorts that I suspect will be invoked for months and years to come. For Obama’s defenders — however few of them are left — it’s no doubt a sympathetic portrayal. But for everybody else, it’s a pretty astounding indictment of the insularity and arrogance of this administration. The White House view: Our greatest sin was trying too hard to get all of the policies right and failing to appreciate the evil of our opponents and the gullibility of the American people.
