Mort Zuckerman, editor in chief of U.S. News & World Report, is not a right-wing crackpot, so his assessment of Obama’s first year is a stinging indictment. “He’s done everything wrong,” says Zuckerman. He also points to the baseline corruption and ethical vacuum that pervades the Obama era:

It is disgusting, just disgusting. I’ve never seen anything like it. The unions just got them to drop the tax on Cadillac plans in the health-care bill. It was pure union politics. They just went along with it. It’s a bizarre form of political corruption. It’s bribery.

Hey, he’s from Chicago. A lot of folks saw this coming a long time ago.
