Salon is having a hard time since Huff Post came on the scene, they've got to do outrageous stuff just to get noticed anymore, so they plug in this shit from this dork. I think in general, Democrats are ecstatic over Obama's performance overseas, he has done everything I could have personnally asked him to do, and set a whole new tone for a new era. And this is just the beginning. His tumultuous reception by the troops in Iraq was an added pleasant surprise. My only real pissed-off moment was when he bowed to that Saudi Arabian fascist fuck who calls himself a "king". That was just not cool, but hey, at least he did not hold his hand and kiss the fuck, like our last president did, probably while Cheney was sucking his kingly wanker.
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.
