Steyn: It's Still Not Obama's Fault

Steyn takes a fiskian axe to Jacob Weisberg of Slate who claims that Obama's horrible missteps are still Bush's fault:

Weisberg: Most alarmingly, given all that his predecessor did to discredit them, Obama has failed to stand up for the broader ideas of democracy promotion and
humanitarian intervention. Surely if not for Bush, Obama's instinct after the Iranian lection would have been to identify with those risking their lives to free their country, not to get back to his attempt at dialogue with Ahmadinejad.

Steyn: So Bush is to blame for Obama kissing up to the mullahs? Brilliant! Who knew such a sober foreign-policy "realist" surrounded by the brightest minds of his generation could be so easily unhinged?
