For seven years, Democrats have rightfully complained that President Bush has gratuitously antagonized the world, exasperating our allies and eroding America’s standing and influence.
But now the Democrats are doing the same thing on trade. In Latin America, it is Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton who are seen as the go-it-alone cowboys, by opposing the United States’ free-trade agreement with Colombia.
But in all the discussion it is generating, will no one express concern over Nicholas Kristof’s Nuance Deficit Disorder (NDD)?
Sure, it looks like the Democrats are hypocritical double-standardists.
But we know that Obama’s ways are higher than our ways, and so we walk by faith and not by sight.
Get well soon, Mr. Kristof.
