Who knew it would be this easy to get inside Obama’s head?
This is something that has bugged me for about a year: Obama can be rumbled.
McCain did it a few times last summer with the humorous videos that mocked Obama in Berlin at the Siegessäule.
Cheney is doing it now on national security, viz.
Cheney Exposed Obama’s Hypocrisy
by Nicholas Guariglia
Cheney is likely correct about the content of the memos, which is why he is talking and Obama is stalling. Should these documents be released, as I suspect they will, and should they prove enhanced interrogation thwarted mass-casualty terrorist attacks on American soil, that would then constitute the final nail in the coffin of this political battle. Who knew it would be this easy to get inside Obama’s head?
…Has there ever been an example where a private citizen so effectively knocked the president of the United States off message and off stride? This should not be a fair fight. Through unending ad hominem caricature, Dick Cheney is supposed to embody all that is evil; Obama, all that is new, fresh, and righteous. And yet Cheney is actually winning this debate, and winning badly. Cheney is the only former Bush official to come out, state the obvious, and expose the man behind the curtain: President Obama might rebuke Bush-era policies in word, but in deed he replicates them.
What worries me is that the Russians and the Iranians can see the same weakness.
