Except the report only takes on perceived shortcomings on the right, while trumpeting the left's agenda on labor, health care and even the Obama economic stimulus package.
More Krikorian on the Obama administration: "They feel morally self-righteous, and really, they don't like Americans much."
You see it in the State Department report, which starts out with the assertion that the world shares "universal values," such as that "all are created equal and endowed with inalienable rights." But the world does not share those values. D.C. diplomats were overly generous toward foreign thugs, while they dumped on Arizona for passing a state law to bolster duly- enacted federal immigration law.
If that tactic makes sense to you, then you're not as smart as you think.
