Well, once again, Obama has decided to take a new approach, although one eerily reminiscent of Carter's philosoph of malaise. From Google news, "Obama spies endgame in Oregon":
"We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK," Obama said.
"That's not leadership. That's not going to happen," he added.
I don't drive an SUV, but it's not because I thought some other country was going to tell me no. I want a president who will defend our country against attacks by other countries, and will keep me from being answerable to some other government.
But apparently, Obama thinks his job is to tell us what other countries aren't going to let us do, and convince us that if some other country says no, we can't do it.
