Where Obama Went Wrong, Some More of Obama's Greatest Mistakes, and Who Is This Obama Person, Anyway?

Ezra Klein has a critical review of Suskind's Confidence Men that examines the mistakes Obama's White House didn't make, and the ones it did. Good stuff, as usual from Klein (whom I need to read more often).

I would've added only that it was folly to cut a deal to extend the Bush tax cuts in Dec. 2010 without getting an agreement on the debt ceiling as part of the package. They knew the results of the election; they had no reason to expect the GOP would be reasonable or responsible.
