Patriotism — she’s questioning yours

Remember when it was out of bounds to question the patriotism of your political opponents? Remember when dissent was the highest form of patriotism? Not anymore.

SECRETARY CLINTON: …So I know we live in a hyper-information-centric world right now, and March seems like it’s a decade ago, but by my calendar, it’s only months. And in those months, we have seen an international coalition come together unprecedented between not only NATO, but Arab nations, the Arab League, and the United Nations. This is something that I don’t think anyone could have predicted, but it is a very strong signal as to what the world expects to have happen, and I say with all respect that the Congress is certainly free to raise any questions or objections, and I’m sure I will hear that tomorrow when I testify.

But the bottom line is, whose side are you on? Are you on Qadhafi’s side or are you on the side of the aspirations of the Libyan people and the international coalition that has been created to support them? For the Obama Administration, the answer to that question is very easy.

Of course, this time, it’s a Democrat bombing an arab oil-producing country, so dissent is no longer patriotic, just like when Bill Clinton, the last Democrat president, was bombing all the brown people he could find, from Mogadishu to Baghdad.
