Why make excuses for Obama's failures?

President Barack Obama is leaving the G-20 summit with no peace deal in Syria. Sept. 5, 2016. (CBS Miami)

The only conceivable explanation for your editorial on President Obama's recent Asia trip is that it was an attempt to turn a sow's ear into a silk purse ("A question of temperament," Sept. 6).

The Chinese disrespected the U.S. president, the president of the Philippines disrespected him, North Korea disrespects him — but who don't they disrespect? — and Russian President Vladimir Putin continues to tear holes in Mr. Obama's and Hillary Clinton's "reset" of relations with Moscow.

Yet somehow The Sun manages to turn all this into a positive for Mr. Obama — while punching Donald Trump in the gut.

Sycophancy and hypocrisy reign on Calvert Street.
