Glenn Loury (Watson Institute for International and Public AffairsBrown University) and Ann Althouse (Althouse)

On The Glenn Show, Glenn and Ann check in on Obama a year into his second term. Has his vacillation on Syria and the Fed hurt his credibility? Ann argues that the Larry Summers controversy exposed an anti-science crowd on the left—but maybe a small dose of delusion is healthy.

Finally, Glenn criticizes the secrecy of the security state under Obama.
