Ann Coulter seems to have been struck yesterday by the partisan insanity that infects our politics: the instinct to support or oppose something based purely upon President Obama’s stance on the matter.
Does Obama now support the war in Afghanistan? Suddenly it’s no longer treason to oppose it.
On Wednesday, July 7, Coulter wrote: “Everyone knows it’s not worth the trouble and resources to take a nation of rocks and brigands.”
Has Coulter abruptly joined the Ron Paul antiwar right? Not at all. Obama still continues to denounce the Iraq War – and so Coulter supports that. No thinking of our own necessary for conservatives: Just listen to what the President says – and then do precisely the opposite.
