The Next Right Wing Meme

According to Forbes, Barack Obama is the new Jimmy Carter; weak and wishy-washy in the face of the threats from North Korea’s nuclear sabre-rattling.

But wait; wasn’t Barack Obama the next Hitler or Chairman Mao, the hard-core socialist dictator who dispatched his opponents without mercy? At least that’s what they were telling us back in the days of the teabagging demonstrations or as David Brooks seems to suggest.

I really wish they would make up their minds; it’s hard to keep track.
