I’ve been arguing with people on Facebook that if they’re going to blame Obama for what’s going on in Ukraine, they need to offer an alternative or at least offer a specific criticism.
Here, The Washington Post editorial board does neither. In fact, they go out of their way to say the USA shouldn’t be using the military to solve these problems. So the only specific they mention is exactly what Obama is not doing.
And it’s exactly the sort of armchair ivory-tower nonsense that makes people resent newspapers. They’re arguing for the president to be tougher without even showing the guts to make a point. Or sign their names.
