Why is it…?

…that Obama can rally the world’s leaders behind him for a common cause, while Bush with his Neocon philosophy and cohorts like Cheney, Rove, et al (whom you voted for) were snubbed and had to go it alone, while the world mocked them?

You were the one, among many, who said Obama lacked the foreign policy experience to be President. You preferred McCain and Palin. PALIN!! Hmmm….why is that?

For weeks, Obama played a form of international chess to build a unified multi-national front against Iran while preserving the option to talk and negotiate. He abandoned plans for a ballistic missile defense in Europe , apparently in part to win Russian cooperation, slapped tariffs on Chinese tires, arguably to prod them along, then huddled with their leaders and finally rolled out the news that he’d held close to the vest for months — that Iran has a secret uranium enrichment plant.

“This is a very clever way of doing it,” said Fariborz Ghadar , a professor at Penn State University and Iran scholar at the Center for Strategic and International Studies .

“I heard this idea from a few conservatives when the news first broke. That Obama might have scrapped the missile defense system if Russia allows Israel to bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities. If this turns out to be true, I would think that this would be a very astute and calculating move by Obama. We shall see.”

    I think there is alot we don’t know that is going on right now and I believe we will need more time to see what transpires. I would be more than willing to give Obama credit if he is able to pull off an international coalition that stops Iran. I have expressed over the years to you that I think Iran is very dangerous and a real threat which you have repeatedly rebuffed. I really hope that there is a unifying effort to stop this radical government.

    I am not a partisan. I had plenty of things I didn’t like about the McCain/Palin ticket and I said so here. You always seem to forget that you are defending a party and I am defending a philosophy. You will defend Obama next year whether Iran is moving closer towards nuclear weapons or if they are neutralized by a national coalition. I will be critical of him if this internatioanl coalition doesn’t work and praise him if he pulls it off.

    But…but…but…your “philosophy” and your voting record and general opinions reside heavily in the Republican party. There’s no denying that. But, you favor much of modern Liberal ‘philosophy” which consist of abortion rights, anti-death penalty, gay rights, and secularism. So your philosophy is not as pure as you may like to think. And this is the core reason why I give you so much crap, because you are willing to defend people like Palin and Rush, with whom you disagree about some very important issues–but they are “fiscal conservatives” so you defend them, which to me is sort of selling out. Bush, McCain, Palin, Rush, Neal Boortz, Krauthammer, and those guys are all very socially conservative yet (claim to be) fiscally conservative, so you tend to stay on their side, even though they spew some pretty nasty stuff sometimes. So, being philosophically conservative is fine–if that’s what you are. But I don’t really think you are as conservative as you think you are. So why do you almost always side with them? Why does fiscal conservatism always trump more “liberal” social policies which you believe in? It’s very puzzling to me. And that is the crux of my being a pain in your ass. 🙂
