When I read Michael O'Hanlon's ornery remarks in The Washington Times this morning, I suppose I took it for granted that he didn't also have a Wall Street Journal op-ed. I mean, I know the guy's prolific, but how many conservative media outlets can he be in simultaneously? Well, I was wrong. The essence of the argument is that if Obama thinks that face-to-face meetings with foreign leaders will single-handedly solve all of America's policy problems, then he's sorely mistaken. This is, of course, true but O'Hanlon can't be bothered to adduce any evidence that Obama does think this. After all, you'd have to be extraordinarily dumb to adopt the straw-man view that O'Hanlon's attacking here.
