Wonder why Katty Kay picks a column by Obama man El-Erian to talk about the effects of Sequestration on US foreign policy….

She could have chosen this revealing report on Obama’s foreign policy effectiveness…
Barack Obama is a “dithering” president whose controlling tendencies and extreme risk-averse attitude to foreign policy has damaged US interests in the Middle East, according to a new book by a senior former State Department adviser.
But she didn’t….which is why we get to read a piece praising Obama…‘The answers lie more in the political than economic domain……urgently anchored by a medium-term growth and job vision, such as the one the President has proposed to Congress.’ and condemning the Republicans blaming them for the political impasse.
Mardell also seems to have given the story about Obama a miss. Can’t imagine him being so slow off the mark with a similar tale about Bush.
