Jonathan Alter prostrates himself before the court of the “Obama Doctrine”
This is the hand he’s been dealt by hisotry. He’s a reluctant warrior. So it’s not as if he’s converted to being a cowboy. So I think people recognize the difference between him and former Pres. Bush.
Therein lies the media meme for Obama’s Libyan War–despite the implied virtuosity of a liberal President, who is seemingly above the fray and the ickiness of constitutional channels for declaring war, reluctantly commits US personnel and treasure to yet another Muslim country, and commences bombing the hell out of them.
But it’s all good because he’s not George Bush.
