And lo, a cry went forth across the land. Never before had such words of eloquence been spoken. Indeed, if one dared, hope could be felt more tangibly than ever thought possible. Redemption for all, healing and change would soon wash over the world and challenge all who clung bitterly to their opposition. Not only one nation, but all of the world's population would benefit from the one who gave sound to such words, who dared to visit other lands, while vying for leadership of only one. Truly, one to rule them all. This symbol of all the world's hopes and dreams smiling down upon us all, not afraid to tell us to do more, to come together as one.
But then John Bolton's mustache spoke.
Obama explained that the fall of the Berlin Wall and the reunification of Europe proved “that there is no challenge too great for a world that stands as one.”
Perhaps Obama needs a remedial course in Cold War history, but the Berlin Wall most certainly did not come down because “the world stood as one.” The wall fell because of a decades-long, existential struggle against one of the greatest totalitarian ideologies mankind has ever faced. It was a struggle in which strong and determined U.S. leadership was constantly questioned, both in Europe and by substantial segments of the senator’s own Democratic Party. In Germany in the later years of the Cold War, Ostpolitik — “eastern politics,” a policy of rapprochement rather than resistance — continuously risked a split in the Western alliance and might have allowed communism to survive. The U.S. president who made the final successful assault on communism, Ronald Reagan, was derided by many in Europe as not very bright, too unilateralist and too provocative.

Be sure to read all of what the mustache has to say. It would seem that Barack Obama has as much a grasp or respect for history as does Pat Buchanan. I agree with Michelle Malkin, it would be a good thing if Ambassador John Bolton were part of a McCain administration. In fact, McCain at some point should announce that, as it would generate some excitement among conservatives, along with the added entertainment of watching a number of heads explode.
We can only hope at this point, but at least this is hoping for something specific, with known qualities, rather than just repeating the word ad nauseam.
I apologize for this racist post, that did nothing to help Michelle Obama's children.
