Andrew Sullivan: Obama’s Long Game

Good context by Andrew Sullivan in framing Obama and his policies relative to both right and left demagoguery in this election cycle. I have my serious doubts about Obama, after supporting him in 2008, but this article has me rethinking things a bit. At the least, it makes me realize how much the constant barrage of messaging actually does take hold in our brains and shapes opinion. It takes a real effort to clear out the noise and get down to basic facts in order to get grounded in a view.

About Chris

I am a husband, father, son and brother. I worked for a long time in investment banking / advisory and looking forward to now building from the inside. What is my purpose?....don't think that I have figured that out, it is tricky. I have lots of good intentions, some of which blossom into good deeds and some of which could use a catalyst. But I am trying to figure it out, and I hope to eventually.
