NEGOTIATING WITH TERRORISTS:  The White House publicly touts its decision to hold talks with Iran after the election.  Interesting timing, to say the least.  As the Wall Street Journal editorial board observes:

At last week’s debate, Mr. Obama got huffy and said he resented any implication by Mitt Romney that his Administration had played politics with national security with its misleading accounts of what happened in Benghazi. The real question is when has this Administration not tried to exploit national security for political advantage?

Shouldn’t really come as a surprise to anyone familiar with progressive/critical legal thinking, which holds law = politics.  In fact, everything is politics, under this ideology, so there’s nothing unusual about their belief that national security = politics, too.
