"In the past, presidents have invoked — and, in the opinion of their critics, started — wars to unite the country behind them. President Bush used 9/11 and Iraq this way. But Obama can't play that card. Military bravado isn't in his nature. There's nothing to brag about in Iraq or Afghanistan—the best Obama could say about those wars last night was that our troops would be coming home — and Americans are preoccupied by unemployment. So Obama has found a different war to rally the nation: an economic war." (01/26/11)
