I wanted to share with you this piece I did for POLITICO, which is running today.
The point of it is that it doesn’t matter too much who wins or loses in the short term on the debt ceiling – Obama already loses. From the piece:
What the debt ceiling imbroglio confirms for many Americans is that they are living in a world turned chaotic, a perilous place where things they thought they knew turn out to wrong and security they thought was their right is revealed as a mirage.
Not all the serious problems swirling about us are Obama’s fault, though some are. Others he has merely shown himself ill-equipped or incompetent to slay. But whether he is guilty or guilty by association, the Obama era is a time of instability and danger. And that’s bad politics for a president.
Hope you get a chance to take a look.
