Ted Vaill: Republican hotheads are trying to goad President Obama into a foreign policy mistake, which they can use to their advantage in the 2014 and 2016 elections. Ignore them.
Timothy V. Gatto: The old maxim that hindsight is 20/20 while foresight is practically blind fits well in this example. Let me illustrate how I believe Obama has manipulated the system to the point where the political Left is for all intents and purposes, a dead political entity. The only thing left at this point is to hold the funeral and send flowers.
