The Hard Way

Peggy Noonan’s WSJ column this week is a must-read. In it, she speaks of the impact the Gulf of Mexico oil spill is having on President Obama's political standing.

I don’t agree with everything in the column. But, Noonan makes several points worth considering.

Money quote:

When your most creative thoughts in the middle of a disaster revolve around protecting your position, you are summoning trouble. When you try to dodge ownership of a problem, when you try to hide from responsibility, life will give you ownership and responsibility the hard way.
