When it comes to battling those who want us dead, Obama’s approach echoes that old saying among Soviet laborers: “We pretend to work, and they pretend to pay us.”
Well, Every sadist needs a submissive masochist, right? The president must really believe we deserve to be hurt.
And that "pretend" habit is a problem, isn't it? Let's hope we have a "safe word."

UPDATE: Let me add that I am not making a charge of "treason" or anything like that.
I'm just saying--again--that despite having the lead in wars, this president just doesn't think of himself as a war president. He focuses on domestic policies and seems to think of foreign policy mostly in terms of how it affects his domestic policies.
Sometimes that means he acts like a commander-in-chief because it would look too bad to do nothing. But it is all a matter of pretending.
UPDATE: Basically, if we retreat enough, our president seems to believe that surely our foes will eventually become so grateful for their America-enabled advances that they'll be our friends and partners.
