Now, I don't know what's going on with the President Elect, but it appears that his policy views are a little unstable, to say the least. He railed against President Bush during the 2008 election, and now that George W. Bush is leaving office, now Obama is trying to emulate him.
Just see what Obama's been saying lately. Either the guy is really a change agent or he's just Bush's third term. Wait-- I thought that was an insult to John McCain. I'm confused.
With respect to the Middle East, Obama didn’t even say we’d gotten much wrong in the past. Asked by Stephanopoulos whether his policy would build on Bush’s or would be a clean break, Obama answered, “if you look not just at the Bush administration, but also what happened under the Clinton administration, you are seeing the general outlines of an approach.” So: No break.
So is Obama the guy who everyone believes he is? Is he really the naive little boy inheriting the reins of the most powerful nation (and military) on the planet? His pre-Presidency appears to be marked by dual-sidedness, unable to see which Barack Obama will be President.
Hopefully the one that's like George W. Bush.
