The Difference

PM Carpenter thinks this president has what it takes to navigate the Libyan morass:

That is the fundamental difference between today and ten years ago, between this intervention and that war, between one exceptionally bad president and an exceptionally good one: character, which Obama has, and Bush did not. 

You see, I trust Barack Obama, so I'm willing to cut him some slack on a matter I cannot, I confess, say I'm enthusiastic about. No thinking person or scrupulous judge of character could have, would have ever trusted George W. Bush.
