Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Good Plan

Maybe you heard?

So, a group of right wing military types are upset that Obama is saying that he was Presidenting when that bin Laden fellow got shot in the face.  How dare that Kenyan Socialist point out a fact like that?  It's almost as bad as when he says stuff about Mitt Romney.

I'm sure that Obama - who has not campaigned on his foreign policy successes, which are many - is really quaking in his boots about people bringing up the fact that bin Laden got shot in the face.  I don't listen to everything Obama says, maybe he is out there dropping a dead bin Laden into every speech he makes.

But even so, the fact that this fact is out there means that Obama is politicizing this event.  And we can't politicize national security, now can we?
