Fifty Shades of Fey

Our First Citizen of the World really has no interest in defending America, does he?

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."

Tip to Instapundit.

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.
