Today's big economic news was that the unemployment rate is down to 7.3 percent, the lowest it has been since 2008. In the first year President Obama took office, the Great Recession spiked the rate to 10.0 percent, to put this figure into perspective.

The big problem -- not just for Obama, but for America -- is that there simply aren't a whole lot of good options in Syria. So I thought it'd be worthwhile to go through them, in the spirit of Bush's "decider room."

With the question of how to respond to the Syrian government's use of chemical weapons looming over him, I wonder if President Obama, at the opening of the new Bush Library, stepped into its "Decision Points Theater." The interactive exhibit allows viewers to be the decider-in-chief on a number of key situations from the Bush years, including the invasion of Iraq, after hearing advice from actors playing political and military leaders. Of course, to make Obama's experience mirror Bush's, he'd be offered cherry-picked "facts" backing up a pre-determined decision. Knowing what to do about Syria would be a "slam dunk." A more useful exhibit would be one explaining why so many from the Bush administration who got Iraq so wrong are still being listened to. The disastrous and tragic consequences of the terrible decision-making on Iraq are still very much with us (here is one powerful and moving example), and the unintended consequences of strengthening Iran will be with us for a very long time.
