Obama Mans Up.Posted: June 23, 2010
Obama this afternoon, in his firing of General McChrystal and his naming of General Petraeus to replace him in Afghanistan, was everything he wasn’t last week in his BP speech.
If you didn’t hear either speech, you could know the difference between them just by comparing the picture above this blog post to the picture that leads the blog post immediately below.
He can build on this moment by taking control of the BP situation with the same command he showed today. And he should.
