A reader e-mails to say I’m missing the boat on Paul’s Castro-Chavez answer: “Notice he can’t muster a harsher criticism of Chavez than ‘hard to deal with’ while pinning the blame on our own government. That is always how he answers these questions.”
Fair enough. And the idea that we create Castros and Chavezes puts the moral responsibility on us rather than the dictators themselves, which obviously isn’t right.
