Great Minds

I am not saying Taranto reads my blog, but...

It is very well to choose one's words carefully, but Obama's timidity is shameful. One of the central arguments for electing him president was that he would restore America's "moral authority," supposedly squandered by George W. Bush. But of what use is moral authority to a nation led by a man who is either too indifferent or too frightened to say a word on behalf of what is right?

Early this morning, I posted:

On of the key promises of Obama's candidacy was that he would "restore America's standing in the world"... Most Americans, I think, have difficulty seeing how remaining silent, or neutral, in the face of a stolen election is a recipe for restoring, rather than undermining, our global standing.
