VICTOR DAVIS HANSON: Anatomy of the Obama Meltdown. “As in all Greek tragedies, we the audience can see what might have happened had Obama avoided hubris and its attendant nemesis: If, from the get-go, he had focused on jobs; avoided talking about tax hikes; postponed health care; controlled spending; worried about rising deficits; avoided the ‘them vs. us’ rhetoric; and stayed Olympian and aloof when polarizing local controversies grabbed the cable TV headlines. And now? After November, Obama can only hope that he can outsource the messy work of cuts and budget balancing to the congressional Republicans. . . . In the meantime, an entire generation of Democratic House members and senators are going to pay a heavy price for falling for a clearly inexperienced, untried, and often petulant candidate amid the exuberance of the 2008 hope and change wave.”
