Jake Tapper takes on the politics of the debacle in Egypt and Libya. Team Romney seems to have been far too quick off the mark, giving the media an excuse to make Romney the story. Sitting tight and letting Obama say something useless while others made the obvious Carter comparisons could have been a better course (he said with 50/50 hindsight). [Obama's statement.]
And the Israel/Iran suspense builds as well, with a recent blow-up between Netanyahu and Clinton/Obama.
FWIW: Lest Obama look for relief at home, the Chicago teacher's strike is a minefield for him, and this Census Bureau report about declining income is neither surprising nor helpful.
