Fareed Zakaria is still an idiot

Reading through Fareed Zakaria's latest...plagaristic activity?...I can't help but wonder where his mind is.  He gets correct the difference between the prior regimes in Libya and Egypt. He even calls out Egypt's President as a radical!  But where he screws up is by comparing Romney's call out of President Obama's failed Middle Eastern policies to Muslim death threats against Salman Rushdie during the Reagan administration.

Muslims were calling for Rushdie's life because of the book he wrote, not because of their hatred of the United States.  Modern day Muslims are calling for death to America because they hate America. When President Obama said it was a new day for the relationship between the US and Islam. His policies have clearly failed. Have other presidents succeeded? Not necessarily.  But they weren't arrogant enough to claim things would be different before they even got into office.

It's time for a change.  America needs a president who doesn't kowtow to foreign interests.  Let's make the right choice this time and encourage others to do the same.
