Zbigniew Brzezinski and Walter Russell Mead were interview on The News Hour tonight about President Obama receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. It was an insightful interview, and Brzezinski in particular felt that this could help the President in working with Israel, Palestine, Afghanistan, and Iran.
However, Brooks pronounced it a joke and that it just encourages “The Messiah” image of the President. (He said much the same on NPR earlier.) Marcus compared his receiving the prized to pee-wee soccer.
So whose opinions should carry more weight?
Washington week in review is on next. I’m pretty sure there will be a lot of smug poo-pooing by the journalists. Perhaps I shouldn’t prejudge them.
Before that gets started though, let me just say, I am proud of our president and proud of us for electing him. He’s on the right course and has kept moving forward, despite having the largest set of concern trolls ever in history.
