Roger Cohen, "Obama’s Team of Idolizers": The King Has No Clothes

Who would ever imagine that Roger Cohen would be the first New York Times columnist to recognize the failure of the Obama administration. In his op-ed entitled "Obama’s Team of Idolizers" (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/28/opinion/roger-cohen-obamas-team-of-idolizers.html), Cohen writes:

"Well, four years have passed and Obama has adroitly steered the bankrupted United States he inherited away from the precipice but has not provided a 'different future' worthy of the hope invested in him; and that imagined team of rivals became a team, or rather a coterie, of idolizers.

There is only one star in the galaxy at this White House and his name is Barack Obama. Everyone in the Sun King’s court has drunk the Kool-Aid."

Cohen proceeds to highlight Obama's folly of escalating the war in Afghanistan.

One can only wonder whether there will be another Times columnist brave enough to acknowledge that the king has no clothes.

  1. Yeah, I saw the title yesterday, but wasn't sure it was safe to read without a major stomach upset. I am still not sure.
    Cohen is playing an old game. The tsar is good, but his advisers ... I am not sure I like it.
    Actually, I don't like it, but still it's an admission that the present foreign policy is a disaster.
    I was wondering how long this obvious fact would be ignored. BTW, the fact that something so blatant has been ignored is telling ...
