I can’t figure out what this is: Stay-the-Course Plus. I’d call it sophistry or lies, but it’s too unclever and serious. The thesis: Obama and Romney have foreign policy agendas which are strikingly similar not only to each other, but to Bush.
I mean, does this even deserve a response? Mr. Double-Guantanamo vs. Mr. Obama have the same approach?
One respects the rule of law and the other doesn’t. Mr. Hiatt, that’s a huge difference. One supports an unnecessary war and the other doesn’t. That’s a huge difference.
But if someone were to not appreciate the rule of law, I suppose I could see how you would get the two confused.
