Karl Rove:

House Republicans had the wisdom to continue to talk to the Obama White House. This made them look gracious, even as the president edged toward a "my way or the highway" attitude.

Pete Wehner:

Right now President Obama and his team look at times amateurish and somewhat overmatched by events.


Anyway, if Obama is "overmatched by events" what was George W Bush?
