Slight differences in language to describe the same foreign policy of Obama and Clinton, along with subsequent post-debate comments have led to a feeding frenzy in the media. I’m glad to report that we have not reported on this non-story. Whether this decision was made consciously or out of pure laziness is probably best left up to your own interpretation. Anyway, the stigma attached to favoring diplomacy over military action has resulted in Obama slumming with Hillary for the title of biggest warmonger. Stewart sums up the idiocy of it all.
By now I imagine you’ve all gotten over the disappointment which is Barack Obama. You know, the candidate who wants to be like Hillary, who wants to be like Lieberman, who wants to be like Bush, who wants to be like Cheney. I don’t think anyone here was ever fooled into believing Barack was an anti-war candidate, but I personally didn’t expect him to make the incredibly stupid move of threatening Pakistan with military action. As if Hillary’s spin wasn’t devastating enough, now he’s being pwnd by Pakistani officials too. Pakistan’s Foreign Minister called Obama’s statement irresponsible, and said; “As the election campaign in America is heating up we would not like American candidates to fight their elections and contest elections at our expense.” Ouch. The Obarometer just hit a new low.
