'His only enemies are fellow Americans'

About three weeks old, but I just turned this up today. Columnist Gerald Warner positively shreds Barack Obama over the release of the "torture" memos and in general "cosying up to all the bad guys":
If al-Qaeda, the Taliban and the rest of the Looney Tunes brigade want to kick America to death, they had better move in quickly and grab a piece of the action before Barack Obama finishes the job himself. Never in the history of the United States has a president worked so actively against the interests of his own people - not even Jimmy Carter.

Obama's problem is that he does not know who the enemy is. To him, the enemy does not squat in caves in Waziristan, clutching automatic weapons and reciting the more militant verses from the Koran: instead, it sits around at tea parties in Kentucky quoting from the US Constitution. Obama is not at war with terrorists, but with his Republican fellow citizens. He has never abandoned the campaign trail.
And that's just for openers. Great stuff...read the whole thing.

The lustre is certainly becoming thin.
The backlash when it comes could be ferocious.
