“President of the Future”

“The excitable lads around the globe torching American embassies with impunity seem to have figured this out, even if the striped-pants crowd at Turtle Bay are too polite to mention it. Obama is not the
president of the Future. He is president right now, and one occasionally wishes the great visionary would take his eye off the
far-distant horizon where educated women and fire-breathing imams frolic and gambol side by side around their Chevy Volts, to
focus on the humdrum present where the rest of us have the misfortune to live.”
