I hate to engage in amateur armchair psychoanalysis (but hey, what’s a blog for?)—but aren’t Republicans (Krauthammer, Hiatt, Hannity, et al) engaging in a bit of transference when they recoil in horror at the prospect of President Obama engaging in naive foreign adventures? Say, like talking to foreign leaders “without precondition”.
Where was this analysis when Incurious George led the US Military Blind into Bagdad? Repressed perhaps?
