Keep the Faith

Instapundit notes that the Left insists that opposing President Obama is motivated by racism. Since Republicans support air strikes in Iraq more than Democrats, obviously there are more racists on the left. But that's the wrong way to look at it.

Sure, the Left is unhappy with the president about Iraq. But the Left remains his bastion of support. Obviously, those opposed to intervening in Iraq to re-win the war have confidence that the president won't actually do more than go through the motions of trying to save Iraq from ISIL (ISIS, aka the Islamic State).

Or maybe I just underestimate the racism of the Left. After all, isn't the approved view of Guantanamo that it should be kept open until there is an alternative?
