Early in the Obama presidency, National Review’s Jim Geraghty observed that all of Barack Obama’s promises come with an expiration date.

Whatever uproar may or may not be occurring from and at Monday's opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, that change of venue -- promised by several presidents of both parties and mandated by Congress in 1995 but accomplished only by Donald Trump -- constitutes an extraordinary development in the seemingly endless history of the Middle East.  And the suspicion here is that, after not too long, it will be seen as a hugely positive one.

He may have eliminated all serious opposition, through prohibitions, imprisonment and the occasional murder, but his country is unsuited for democracy anyway.

President Obama’s legacy is rapidly vanishing. The decision by President Trump to withdraw from the nuclear deal with Iran is the biggest blow, but it’s only the latest. The elimination of the individual mandate and canceling the yearly bailout of insurance companies have left Obamacare in a precarious condition. Young immigrants whose parents brought them to the United States unlawfully—so-called dreamers—are losing their legal status.

Recent chemical attacks and missile strikes thrust the now seven-year-long Syrian Civil War back onto the front pages and into the opinion columns of American newspapers for a couple of days last week. It was the most coverage the conflict has gotten since President Bashar al-Assad’s brutal campaign to retake Aleppo nearly a year and a half ago.
