    All we are saying is give Trump a chance

    It used to be said that American leaders campaign in poetry and govern in prose. If Donald Trump was campaigning in poetry the prose is going to be a blast. In some areas the pointers are good: Brexit and Israel, for example. On others, let's just give Trump a chance

    Obama's dismal but forgettable legacy

    Obama's legacy is dismal. What he did wrong was mainly unoriginal; what he did right was trivial. He was a president consumed with himself. His legacy is entirely forgettable

    The Russia question: Of Barack, Donald, and Vladimir

    There is a sense in which it is worrying that Trump seems warm towards Putin. But Obama, as in so many spheres, never had a serious policy towards Russia. One thing is clear, Washington and Moscow have an overwhelming interest in working together on a range of vital issues

    Lesson 1 for Trump: Don't blame West for MidEast turmoil

    President-elect Trump, even when accounting for mistakes in policy, should forgo apologies for the general chaos and turmoil in the Middle East. Arab societies have a duty to reform themselves because most of their problems are homegrown

    Good riddance, Mr. Obama

    This American writer didn't vote for either Trump or Clinton. But, after eight long, rudderless years, the narcissist Obama is thankfully, finally, on his way out. Let's hope Trump can confound the critics and do a better job

    The Obama doctrine: Don't blame me...

    In Obama's worldview, there is plenty of blame to go around about the state of the world as long as it’s not ascribed to the current occupant of the White House. His arrogance and aloofness never cease to amaze

    Would Obama please butt out of Brexit debate?

    Given Obama's hopeless foreign policy, you'd have thought he'd stay out of the Brexit debate. But no. He's lecturing Britain on staying in. Fine. Every time he opens his mouth he creates thousands more Brexiteers.

    Obama on foreign policy debacle: Don't blame me

    Forget Donald Trump's divisive rhetoric on the campaign trail. What about Barack Obama's disgraceful attacks on Britain and France to try and conceal the disaster that his been his own foreign policy?

    States of misunderstanding? Britain and the US

    A US Presidential contest between a buffoon and a superannuated socialist is unthinkable. Isn’t it? And what's with those insane talk show pundits. Brits just don't get America

    Despite Obama's bragging, his economic legacy is dismal

    Which planet is Barack Obama on? He brags about his economic record. Meanwhile, the U.S. is undergoing its weakest recovery since the Great Depression. And being better than Europe is not a matter for pride

    Hillary Clinton’s increasingly awkward campaign

    Even leaving Hillary's awkwardness aside, the Clintons are a walking scandal machine. Essentially, this is not a couple that deserves more time in the White House, is it?
