オバマの首つり人形

オバマの首つり人形がまた報道された。
 米ジョージア州プレーンズで、オバマ大統領に見立てた人形の首に縄が
かけられて建物からつるされているのが見つかり、大統領警護隊(シーク
レットサービス)が捜査に乗り出したと報じた。

オバマの首吊り人形は大統領選のハロウィーンの際に、いくつか家で吊る
されていたと思う。同時にペイリンの首吊り人形もあった。魔よけを悪用
して、政治活動に利用したのだ思う。

根本には、税金を国民皆保険で黒人に使用され、さらに税金を白人は
支払えと言う意識にあるように思う。景気が回復せず増税となれば、
腹いせをしたかったのかもしれない。

 ロイター通信は3日、米ジョージア州プレーンズで、オバマ大統領に見立てた人形の首に縄がかけられて建物からつるされているのが見つかり、大統領警護隊(シークレットサービス)が捜査に乗り出したと報じた。 米国では2008年の大統領選挙の期間中から同様の事件やいたずらが発生。オバマ氏に対しては人種差別主義者らによる暗殺の危険性も指摘され、大統領就任前から特別に警護が付けられている。

---Is Obama the New Carter?---

Barack Obama might yet revolutionize America's foreign policy. But if he can't reconcile his inner Thomas Jefferson with his inner Woodrow Wilson, the 44th president could end up like No. 39.

Neither a cold-blooded realist nor a bleeding-heart idealist, Barack Obama has a split personality when it comes to foreign policy. So do most U.S. presidents, of course, and the ideas that inspire this one have a long history at the core of the American political tradition. In the past, such ideas have served the country well. But the conflicting impulses influencing how this young leader thinks about the world threaten to tear his presidency apart -- and, in the worst scenario, turn him into a new Jimmy Carter.

Obama's long deliberation over the war in Afghanistan is a case study in presidential schizophrenia: After 94 days of internal discussion and debate, he ended up splitting the difference -- rushing in more troops as his generals wanted, while calling for their departure to begin in July 2011 as his liberal base demanded. It was a sober compromise that suggests a man struggling to reconcile his worldview with the weight of inherited problems. Like many of his predecessors, Obama is not only buffeted by strong political headwinds, but also pulled in opposing directions by two of the major schools of thought that have guided American foreign-policy debates since colonial times.

In general, U.S. presidents see the world through the eyes of four giants: Alexander Hamilton, Woodrow Wilson, Thomas Jefferson, and Andrew Jackson. Hamiltonians share the first Treasury secretary's belief that a strong national government and a strong military should pursue a realist global policy and that the government can and should promote economic development and the interests of American business at home and abroad. Wilsonians agree with Hamiltonians on the need for a global foreign policy, but see the promotion of democracy and human rights as the core elements of American grand strategy. Jeffersonians dissent from this globalist consensus; they want the United States to minimize its commitments and, as much as possible, dismantle the national-security state. Jacksonians are today's Fox News watchers. They are populists suspicious of Hamiltonian business links, Wilsonian do-gooding, and Jeffersonian weakness.
