Shock: Frum Slams Palin | Main | Patterico: LAT Simply Flat-Out Lying to Readers Now

A Partial List of Obama's Impressive List of Broken Promises

Nuance.

No one on the right is exactly crying that Obama has suddenly discovered missile defense might be worth keeping, or that terrorists shouldn't be let out of war prisoner camps during the midst of the war they were captured in, or etc., etc., etc.

No, the complaint is this: The left plays a game of national security blackmail with the country over such issues. If the right takes actions which they themselves admit are necessary (Clinton conducted extraordinary renditions, for example), they agitate constantly and stridently to end the practice.

If and only if someone of the left is elected president do such actions become legitimate again.

Thus the blackmail: Elect us into high office or we will resist, undermine, prevent, and block actions necessary to safeguard the US.

It's one thing to take such opposition-just-to-oppose with lesser matters. But with national security? Unacceptable.

What will be even more interesting is whether our judges are suddenly a bit more flexible about constitutional protections for terrorists they have claimed are "fundamental" now that their boy is in office.

A Nation of Men, Not Laws? Apparently so, since the propriety and "constitutionality" of actions and laws seems to turn on the partisan affiliation of the President undertaking them or proposing them, and not upon the laws or actions themselves.
