Obama channels John Kerry

Shorter Obama:

I am against preventive detention (Bush’s), except when I am for it (mine).

I am for transparency (“torture/”interrogation memos), except when I am against it (“torture/”interrogation photos).

I am against the power to order enhanced interrogation techniques, except when I assume that power myself.

I am against “extended re-litigation of the last eight years,” except when I am doing it.

These are not contradictory, Obama tells us. They are judicious cases of striking a balance between civil liberties and national security.
