Dumbo’s delusions, Barack Obama is, at best, a very ordinary man, with a very extraordinary ego, from Ralph R. Reiland, Pittsburgh Tribune: That might be the problem at the White House. U.S. Rep.

Dumbo miffed, by Carol E. Lee, Politico: Asked by CBS’s Chip Reid about complaints heard from other leaders during the summit, Obama shot back: “What about compliments?” He appeared thin-skinned about the characterizations of his time at the summit, saying that nobody wrote about leaders setting the stage for financial regulatory reform at the last […]
