Did anyone notice the utter incoherence of McCain saying that he wanted a spending freeze in answer to one question, and then advocated spending 300 billion to buy bad mortgages in answer to another? Is this like the I will not vote for earmarks except for the 100 billion I just voted for? He's such a loose cannon I think he's rolled off the deck.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
