"Don't whiz on the electric fence!"

President Obama calls for peace in the Middle East.


If I understand correctly, President Obama's strategy for reelection is to open up an intractable, divisive, issue--something juicy, that better Presidents with stronger positions have been unable to make movement on--proclaim a high-minded position that everybody he knows agrees is the obvious solution, act surprised when the uneducated rubes and reactionary conservatives aren't instantly converted by his boldness in speaking truth--ah--from power, and start looking for another political third rail to piss on.

I expect in a month or so he'll be unveiling the New And Improved Assault Weapons Ban and Abortion Kiosks In Every School for American Progress Act.
