Obama. Can you hear me now?

Via Drudge,
Cast of 300 advises Obama on foreign policy

"His campaign says that he is well prepared and that he often alters and expands on the talking points provided to him by his foreign policy advisers."

well lad de freekin da! He has an occasional original thought?

"They also tend to be more liberal and to emphasize using the "soft power" of diplomacy and economic aid to try to advance the interests of the United States."

Ah! The Neville Chamberlain school of foreign policy submission and surrender.

A cast of 300. Hmmm. Makes me think of those Verizon network commercials where the subject is followed around by that Buddy Holly look-alike and his minion of hard hat wearing automatrons. Only instead of them providing a cellular network to the subject, they whisper foreign and domestic policy information to Obama the empty suit. Yes, every candidate (and President, for that matter) HAS ADVISERS. But it's clear to me that Obama is naked without his teleprompter and script. President Bush has been routinely made fun of for his garbled syntax, but at least he is a man of conviction - unswayed by the "flavor of the week" opinion polls. In Obama's move to the center in his campaign, he has made some big problems for himself with his lunatic fringe leftist code pink base.
