“His word is a ping-pong ball in flight.”

“His word is a ping-pong ball in flight.”  That's Rex Murphy describing the value of Obama's word, in his piece on the recent carbon dioxide reduction agreement between the U.S. and China.  Here's his conclusion:
So this great historic deal is really nothing more than yet another trot out of verbal commitments, a last gasp for Mr. Obama, a placation to the always fierce warming constituency, and for the Chinese, a little chuckle or two at how easy it is to charm the eagerly gullible.
You owe it to yourself to read the whole thing – and anything else you can find that Mr. Murphy has writtenHis speeches are just as good.
