Republicans:terrorism :: Democrats:globalization

| June 19, 2008

Daniel Drezner is one of those bloggers I read regularly, even though I don’t always agree with him — and when I don’t agree with him, I consider even more carefully what he has to say, in case I’m wrong.

This paragraph, however, I think is dead on:

You know how Bush officials like to connect any controversial foreign policy issue to the war on terrorism, even though the link might be exceedingly tenuous?  I’m beginning to think that Democrats are practicing the same tactics when it comes to trade.  Republicans like to demagogue about what a scary place the world is in terms of security; Democrats do the same thing when they’re talking about the global economy.

As you might guess, he’s commenting on some recent comments by Barack Obama. Read the whole thing.  ..bruce w..
