With his recent speech on national security and counterterrorism, President Obama delivered a masterful oratory of everything and nothing at the same time. It kinda' sorta' sounded like
he was getting all peaceful and turning over a new leaf. But if you look into what he said just a little bit, or wait for news reports and events to unfold, you'll see all is not peace and love and Obama-of-2008. It's one thing if you take a hard line on counterterrorism and are okay with kill lists and killing citizens of the United States occasionally, just don't give me the warm and fuzzy gosh-this-is-tough routine. Kind of reminds me of an introspective, professorial version of this.
