Beinart Meant Well, But Under Obama, His Thesis Has Clearly Failed
We now have a "Liberal" in the White House, not a classic Liberal of the kind Beinart wrote about. In fact, his kind of Liberal, the Hubert Humphrey-Scoop Jackson type who promoted American power abroad with compassion at home has been all but driven from the Democratic Party, (Joe Lieberman,and possibly Evan Bayh being exceptions)courtesy of the die-hard Leftards who've given us Obama, Clinton, Biden and a bunch of unsavory other characters.
An Israel regularly bashed by an incompetent, inexperienced Obama and a Clinton who should know better;(they've all but wrecked our relationship with our best friend in the Middle East) interference with a Honduras that wisely chose to get rid of a potential Chavez; hands off Iran even when the same Iranian Revolutionary Guards that Senators Obama and Biden chose not to call "terrorist" during the vote on the Kyl-Lieberman Amendment rape and butcher innocent Iranian women and young girls like Neda Soltan. An Obama who all but wrings his hands when North Korea detonates nukes and threatens war.
A War in Afghanistan that despite the best efforts of General Petraeus (no thanks to Obama) that is rapidly becoming the Vietnam style quagmire the Leftards claimed Iraq would become. And yes, still NO Osama - despite a Democratic administration that constantly cried "Tora Bora".
Only last week Joe Biden told the government of Georgia not to expect American military aid at a time Russian aggression is once again threatening the existence of that nation. Nice.
Oh, but he and Hillary did give Hamas 900 mil of American taxpayer dollars at a time when GM and other American firms could have used that kind of bailout.
If this is the kind of "Liberalism" winning the war on terror that Beinart suggests, then we are in for a very rough ride. The world may say nice things about us now under Obama, but we're losing respect fast, and our adversaries are picking that up.
