Obama initially sounded like the therapeutic high-school principal and his ‘zero-tolerance’ doctrine of moral equivalence as he expels both the victim and the bully; but his calls for UN solutions, talks with equally at fault parties, and apparent trust in the wisdom of the EU and the power of NATO may not just scare Eastern Europeans but even those 200,000 who deified him at Berlin.
Get, read and pass on Freddoso’s book: The Case Against Barack Obama.
As for the Lieberman for Veep boomlet, I agree with John Hinderaker: “Let’s hope the Lieberman boomlet dies out quickly.”
I think Senator Lieberman would make an excellent choice for secretary of State, but the veep signals the direction of the party many years down the road, and getting the vast party apparatus to put their collective shoulder to the wheel in the months ahead requires a solid conservative with the ability to inspire the old guard while bringing in some new energy. As I wrote earlier this week, the obvious and smart choice is Romney, though Pawlenty fills most of the bill as well.
As Obama unravels and stumbles about, McCain just needs to keep making sound decisions. The steady hand will out.
