"This is What Happens When the Academic Left Runs the Country"

This is an outstanding essay from David French at NRO.

Read the whole thing. 

"It should go without saying that this is no way to govern a great nation."

"So far the Obama administration’s legacy is one of bruised friendships and empowered enemies."

"The Islamic State rampages, Hamas restocks (with the help of American humanitarian aid), Boko Haram kidnaps, the Taliban advance, Russia owns new/old ground in Europe. And amidst the ruin of their foreign policy, the intellectual and emotional infants in the Obama administration hashtag away, mustering up their anger and fury to sling schoolyard insults at a close ally. All while doing their best to defer the hardest fighting against emerging enemies to the Oval Office’s next occupant."
