There are people who really believe President Barack Obama is some sort of cunning political grand-master, plotting out the checkmate ten moves ahead of his plodding opponents. Nonsense. He’s actually President Peter Principle, failing ever upward thanks to the disarray of his opponents.

Just when you think he might be clever enough to score his cheap points off of Newtown and turn back to beating the hapless...
