The Obama whiplash

Obama’s followers are developing whiplash. As event unfolded in Iran and Obama said nothing, the refrain was that Obama’s refusal to condem the Iranian regime for its crackdown was exactly right. ...Must not appear to interfere…. Can’t do anything anyway…. Condemnation will only give ammunition to the Mullahs. Obama’s finely tuned PR machine put out all the reasons why doing nothing, saying nothing was exactly the right thing to do. Going out for frozen custard with the girls was the ultimate geopolitical coup.

Out comes Obama with his condemnation of the Iranian crackdown. The Obama followers now take exactly the opposite approach. Condemning the Iranian regime shows steel. His statement is exactly right. We must assert our moral authority. His condemnation will not strengthen the Iranian regime.

Watching this in action will explain to the current generation of Americans who did not see the Communist Party USA during the 1940s. First, as allies of Hitler, denouncing the warmongers in Washington; then, after Hitler attacked Stalin, doing a 180, overnight.

We were always at war with Eurasia.

For chilling examples of this kind of thinking go to The Volokh Conspiracy.
