Quote of the Day

Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes has distinguished himself once again, this time claiming that the Obama administration’s refusal to send the 240,000 tons of food aid to North Korea shows that President Obama is tougher than President Bush. It’s amazing the White House is reduced to juvenile boasts of this sort in an effort to burnish their foreign policy achievements; even more amazing is that the deputy national security advisor seems innocent of awareness that the policy he extols is both (a) a repeat of the Bush administration; and (b) a departure from candidate Obama’s promises of a brighter American foreign policy.

Kori Schake, being dead-on accurate. Do remember that this administration’s North Korea policy is a failure.
