Smart President, Foolish Choices When President Obama gives TV interviews, the treatment he gets is typically soft, if not reverential. This is not because of the interviewers’ respect for the presidency–they were much tougher on George W. Bush–but because of ideological and personal sympathy for the man who now holds the office. Yesterday was an exception–perhaps the first time Obama has ever faced a tough interview. The interviewer was Bret […]

March 10, 2010 politisite 0

Political sabers have been incessantly ratting across different branches of the government ever since the Magna Carta. But usually it’s between the White House and Congress.
