The Ditherer

Just now reading the preface to David Sanger’s new book The Inheritance: The World Obama Confronts and the Challenges to American Power – and his frankly scathing (appropriately so IMHO) commentary about how George W. Bush wasn’t the decider, he was “the ditherer“.

Sanger writes:

Sanger concludes his preface by saying that we Americans need to go back to that special mixture of ingenuity, sacrifice, and risk-taking to turn things around.

I think we left it right over here…

David Sanger was on Charlie Rose earlier this week – in two parts.
