Barack Obama’s take on terror epitomizes the essence of liberalism: people will not be who they are, but who we wish them to be, if we say and do all the “right” things. If that doesn’t happen, it’s our fault, not theirs.p>If terrorists ever nuke an American city, imagine one of these fools standing before the public telling us why such monsters deserve the “benefit of the doubt” and a “fair trial.” br> — Arnold Ahlert br> Boca Raton, Florida /p>
I strongly disagree with Philip Klein’s conclusion that Barack Obama doesn’t think terrorism is a big deal — he does; which is why he has a comprehensive approach to combating it that includes using all of our resources including rebuilding our diplomatic allegiances.
Barack Obama diverges from the Bush-McCain approach in two important ways.
First, he is unwilling to go outside the structure of our Constitution. The principles laid down by our founding fathers make us stronger, not weaker. We need to abide by them for our own good and the future of our country. The Bush-McCain approach of anything goes has done more to hurt our country than we realize.
