We vote not just for a President, but for a presidency. Particularly for voters concerned about Mideast policy, it’s hard to argue with the accomplishments—too many of which we already take for granted. You might (grudgingly) concede that this presidency has been, by-and-large, a success.Continue reading
A worthwhile, entertaining, and original take on White House dynamics. Troy demonstrates that Trump administration internal battles are not out of the ordinary. That is true; but what is unprecedented is the the undermining not of fellow aides, but of the president himself. Continue reading

There is a lot of George Bailey in America’s foreign policy DNA. And, like George, we’ve now seen in the Middle East the dystopia of a world in which we are absent.
