Defending the Defendable
In an otherwise-negative piece, Ron Fournier did find three nice things to say about Professor Ditherton Wiggleroom's Syria performance. Here's one:
The man elected in part as repudiation of President George W. Bush's narrow approach to decision-making never closed off his options. He is paying a price for waffling (more on that later), but the president deserves credit for rethinking his plan to wage war without congressional approval. For anybody unwilling to cut Obama some slack, ask yourself: What would Bush and Dick Cheney have done?
Gee... I dunno, Ron. Maybe BOOOOOSH and Cheney would have gone to the American people and successfully drummed up support, gone to Congress and won authorization, and put together a big international coalition?
You know, like they did twice in real life, Ron?
