Over at the Weekly Standard, Andy Ferguson writes about "Obama's Way," Michael Lewis's fulsome portrait of the president in the current Vanity Fair. It seems odd, Andy notes, that Lewis, pictured here with Obama, chooses to center his article on president's decision to intervene in Libya. In the first place, the president made the decision a year before Lewis and his notebook turned up at the White House gates.
And in the second?
Lewis neglects to mention that in the long catalog of the president's foreign policy-making, the Libyan intervention is an anomaly—an intervention from an administration notable for its reluctance to intervene in anything but the American economy.
Ah, Andy. There's no writer like him.
