Leaders vs. Politicians

What a great column by Caroline Glick, who compares Ted Cruz's strong defense of Israel with Obama's wishy-washy PC style.

After being heckled by Christians, “After just a few minutes, I had no choice,” Cruz said. “I told them that if you will not stand with Israel, if you will not stand with the Jews, then I will not stand with you. And then I walked off the stage.”

Meanwhile, "The truth revealed on Wednesday night is that Obama cannot lead a successful war against the forces of Islamic jihad that threaten humanity. He cannot do so because he rejects the moral clarity required to confront the danger.  He cannot successfully lead the war because, as we saw once again on Wednesday night, he is not a leader. He is a politician."
By the way, Howie Carr writes about the disappearance of the anti-war crowd. I guess it's only when the president is a Republican that they demonstrate and protest.
