Being president was always easy for Barack Obama.

That is, it was easy up until the time he actually was elected president. Then things got a little tougher.

In part, Obama’s troubles stem from the rigidity of his broken ideas. They admit of no compromise. Consequently, he has subsumed his whole personality into an unworkable ideology that was dead outside of academia- and news rooms- until he resurrected it.

It’s the idea that a benign government of technocrats and academics can engineer near perfect justice at the trivial cost of liberty to most. 

His life and presidency...
