"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Friday Links!

I'm still working and still don't have the heart to get back to political blogging-- maybe after I finish a few more chapters I'll want a break. Here are some links I found interesting:

William A. Jacobson at Legal Insurrection has an interesting piece on Obama's annoying and marginalizing strategy of setting up strawmen to bolster his own nonsense.

Pundit & Pundette has a nice rebuttal to Obama's Cairo speech.

Pat over at So it Goes in Shreveport also has a response to Obama's speech, focusing on women's rights. She also has a vid-clip of Charles Krauthammer rather incisively picking apart aspects of Obama's speech.

snaggletoothie of the Loyal Opposition has a vid-clip of Liz Cheney's response to Obama's Cairo speech. My favorite moment is when Cheney points out that Egypt isn't really all that happy about the US reaching out to Iran. When will Obama realize that Middle Eastern Muslims are not a single, homogeneous group? Also, check out Obama's pose around 4:16 of the vid-clip... Am I the only one who's reminded of Mussolini?

And speaking about Muslim homogeneity, Jordan at Generation Patriot isn't letting Obama have a free pass on that one. A short post, but necessary with Obama who has made a successful political career out by playing one ill-defined group against another. Generalities such as Obama's are inevitable in race politics-- and probably one of the most personally offensive aspects of American politics.

Quite Rightly at Bread Upon the Waters weighs in on Obama and the zakat (an Islamic religious tax) in an especially interesting post. Check it out.

Have a great weekend!
