Iran Whines that Oil Prices Are Too Low | Main | Heh: Conservative Offers to Rent Out Apartment for Obama Inaugural
November 12, 2008

Obama Deliberately Omitted "Democracy" From Those Aspirations the US Would Support

Too idealistic, or something.

Kaus asks:

I'd give up on the drug war (and the attempt to eradicate Afghanistan's opium crop) before I'd give up democracy.... P.S.: So we really are in for a mirror image of the 20th century, when it was liberals who criticized the U.S. government for siding with strongmen in order to fight the global enemy (Communism)

I think Obama generally favors any policy that 1) pleases the nutroots by repudiating Bush and 2) minimizes US efforts in the War on Terror ... for the moment.

Incidentally, I don't think we need Obama to tell us his foreign policy. Liberal Democrats do not have a foreign policy of their own. Their purported foreign policy is always one step down from whatever Republicans call for.

If we call for war, they call for sanctions.

If we call for sanctions, they call for diplomatic pressure.

If we call for diplomatic pressure, they call for nothing.

It's not rocket science.

I think "nothing" is their genuine all-purpose response. But they rhetorically call for something one step down the ladder each time to oppose while sounding "tough."
