How Obama Misreads History

Ruth Marcus: "Two instincts -- one predictable, the other surprising -- help explain the arc of Barack Obama's presidency. The predictable instinct is Obama's tendency to overlearn the lessons of history. The second, more surprising but related to the first, is Obama's frequent audacity deficit."

"Every capable leader learns from history. But key moments of the Obama presidency demonstrate that he has erred in precisely the opposite direction, by being overly reluctant to repeat the mistakes of his predecessors."
