As a strike on Syria grows nearer, Barack Obama is increasingly haunted by George W. Bush’s decision to attack Iraq based on botched (or was it fabricated?) evidence.
His speech was clear, concise, gave the right nod to his team and to his choice of Ryan. Wished Obama well, said he wanted the job but the American people chose somebody else. That sends a very clear message to his party: the American people have chosen Obama for the next four years. Work with him. And his crowd did not boo or groan, which is also good and right. Let’s hope their party colleagues in Congress get the message.
