One of the more amusing aspects of the current political landscape is the tendency for conservatives to tie themselves into knots trying to maintain the fiction — two and a half years in — that President Milquetoast McStatusquo really is the violent leftist radical they’ve been describing him as. Here is Norman Podhoretz taking what we could call a fundamentalist approach: ‘Never mind what Obama has done, our talking points from the ’08 election say he’s a dangerous radical who associates with terrorists!’ This is the only approach they will ever try, because the last thing they’re going to do is honestly compare Obama’s policy choices to those of a Republican.
