Well, it's starting to look like my Obama's-pretty-good file is going to get some stiff competition from my Obama's-not-so-good file. The new president has:
-- Resorted to poor economic logic and crude scapegoating by criticizing executives for redecorating offices.
-- Signaled an obeisance to feel-good but likely ineffective arms-control vagaries in the matter of space weapons.
-- Moved to raise fuel-efficiency standards, allowing unfunded mandates rather than a straightforward pricing of carbon emissions to dominate policy.
Let's see which file grows faster.
