Another Take on the Superpower Comments

leave a comment »

Allahpundit at Hot Air has a little different take on the recent comments of President Obama.

His general thought is that the “like it or not” refers mostly to the second half of the statement about being dragged into other conflicts wherever they occur, because the US remains a military superpower.

I have to admit, I think I’m a little torn on this. On one hand, that is correct. And I’ve never really liked when public figures are immediately taken to task for a misspoken statement, poor wording, or vague implications of something that was said. This goes for those I disagree with as well.

On the other hand, we already have a year-long history of him apologizing and bowing to foreign leaders, as well as a record of cutting military programs such as the F22 and missile defense systems.

So I suppose the statement could be taken either way.

In any case, the Greatest Speech Maker and Orator of Our Time(tm) could have saved himself some ridicule and criticism by simply adding one little “because.”
