    The only differences are of degree/speed, not of kind.

    Dogs from the street can have all the desirable qualities that one could want from pet dogs. Most adopted stray dogs are usually humble and exceptionally faithful to their owners as if they are grateful for this kindness. -- H.M. Bhumibol Adulyadej

    •  I won't accuse the president of bad faith yet. (0+ / 0-)

      Whatever my disappointments with Obama, & there are many, I'm still inclined to believe that he is acting in good faith to avoid another Middle Eastern war. My fear is not that he really, secretly wants it or supports the neocon worldview, but rather that political gravity (e.g., AIPAC, the neocons @ AEI, the neolibs @ Brookings, the NYT & WaPo, influential senators in both parties) may suck us in anyway. So far at least, the president does appear to be trying to avoid this trap.
