Bill Ayers Is A Happy Man, But He May Be Alone

Today's announcement by Obama on nuclear weapons,
like most that have come before, reflects a clearly centrist, not
progressive, stance that seems to have pleased noone. Still, it's
startling to hear the venom aimed his way by right-wingers like RedState's
- and CNN's?!? - Erick Erickson, who labels it "capitulation of a strong
America." Sorry, Barry, but once again: We're not really the United
States. These guys make Joe McCarthy look tame.

many Americans are going to die because of the Obama
administration's incompetent handling of our national
security?...Signaling to our enemies that we will not punch back as hard
as we
can will just embolden them.  It is one thing to have a
wimp in office. It is another thing to admit it."
