John “Maverick” McCain said in a speech yesterday that he has more in common with Obama on foreign policy than he does with certain people (i.e., actual mavericks) in his own party:http://www.tomwoods.com/blog/mccain-...ing-in-a-tree/
“[President Obama] and I have had our differences. Many of those differences will persist. But there are times these days when I feel that I have more in common on foreign policy with President Obama than I do with some in my own party.”
The rest of the speech was the usual platitudes: “I know some Americans want to pull back from the world right now. That’s a luxury we can’t afford. We are America. We can’t retreat into splendid isolation. We can’t withdraw from the world. We can’t escape its challenges.”
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
