Obama’s three big mistakes – David Frum

From David Frum, writing an op-ed for CNN, Obama’s three big mistakes.

Recovery from a crash like 2008 can take years. Yet even armed with this information, Obama did nothing to prepare the public or his administration for the worst. Instead, he allowed his vice president to tout 2010 as “recovery summer.”

There was no contingency plan, and by the time Obama at last produces his Plan B when he gives a jobs speech in September, he will face an implacably hostile Congress. That September plan will become his 2012 campaign manifesto — which means that the unemployed can hope for no action from him until early 2013.
