i guess it’s cool if you’re on the phelps side of the picket line.
The decision was vintage Obama — an enigmatic president, a strange mélange of caution and audacity, of mushiness and steel. He speaks eloquently about the need for compassion, but has no qualms about killing, as his decision to more than double Predator strikes in Afghanistan and Pakistan suggest. He preaches the need for transparency, but runs a secretive White House. His aides say he favors “leading from behind,” but he demands the ouster of America’s dictator ally in Egypt and transforms a humanitarian rescue mission of civilians in Benghazi into a campaign to oust Moammar Gadhafi, the region’s longest-reigning dictator. He speaks of unity, but his policies divide the nation and often offend both supporters and critics alike. He is a bundle of contradictions.
But today, he is a hero — for many Republicans as well as Democrats, and deservedly so.
