It's "back to school" week for President Barack Obama, after what a CNN analyst called "the vacation from Hell". So perhaps it's a good time to examine what's been going wrong for Obama recently and whether he can fix it. The common complaint of late is that Obama is "disengaged". Even during this golf-besotted vacation, Obama seemed to spend a good part of most days dealing with crises, foreign and domestic.Obama could have saved himself some political trouble by scuttling the vacation altogether, but I'm not sure that would have benefited the country, to say nothing of his family. It's often suggested that Obama should invite more politicians, such as House Speaker John Boehner, to join his famous golf outings. Obama probably thought he was doing the right thing in showing that the president couldn't be brutalized into changing his routine.Obama listens to criticism and then, at a certain point, the switch flips off.
