Looks like someone over at Haaretz in Israel is paying attention:
"The president, who came to power with liberal slogans and a pose of reconciliation with the Muslim world, speaks like Martin Luther King but operates in the international area like a right-wing/conservative outlaw from Alabama. He may defeat the Republicans at the polls, but he has adopted their ideological path."
He gets some things a bit wrong, let's see if they publish my comment:
You have a couple things wrong. The 'outlaw' didn't come from Alabama but from Maine via Texas. That, of course was the Boomer fratboy WhiteBush.
Now you have another Bush of another color from the same immature cohort of Baby Boomers.. aka, the hippys, aka 'those who lead from behind' aka chickenhawks.
Look back into the history of the Big Gov, Big Corp "Neo Conservatives" and you'll see that they are mis-named. They were KICKED OUT of the Democratic Party, and took over the once reasonable Repubs like a parasite. They are, in fact by philosophy 'Neo-Liberals' -- which is why they mesh so well with Obama and his ilk.
What's happening in the USA is a demographic war on the world waged by the Worst Generation- The Baby Boomers.
The casualties are anyone under 40, anywhere in the world.
And that's EVERYONE, including our young soldiers & citizens coming back from the Middle East. Forever changed.
The fact that our Constitution has been shredded by two successive Bushes, the recent 'OBusha' one a Professor of Constitutional Law, is the least of our worries.
