Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

yeah, for it to change radically obama will have to beat back the waves of calumny, part them and then  boogie woogie with no surfboard ...

i think he has to pretend to be a vicious militarist to get the gig.

can politics be changed from a centrist (possibly closet liberal) position?

hopefully we're about to find out.

my guess is yes, but only incrementally, as in tidy up the wars you're in, don't start any new ones, and make your militarism more about taking good care of vets, than about more clunky dysfunctional vaporware ubertoys for dominating space etc.

beat them into solar water heaters instead...
