Might As Well Get It Out Of The Way

So, based on three days experience, it appears that President Obama is going to maintain Bush foreign/military policy while engaging in nationalization and social-engineering at home.

Hmm, military adventures in foreign nations; socialism at home. What discredited 20th century philosophies does that remind us of?

Couldn't be FDR, he brought the troops home from Latin America. And he wasn't a socialist.

Correct, FDR was a commie.

You beat me to it, erp!

Plus, Mr. Eagar is implying that if Bush had brought the troops home from South America, it would have been OK to invade Europe and most of the Pacific Rim. That's a bit more aggressive than his usual stance.
