“we will see what becomes of this dreamers dreams.”

I remember during the election many on the right dismissed the President as a dreamer, an idealist who would give away the country to foreign leaders if he thought it would make them feel good. Some one the left assumed Obama would be Kucinich-lite, a dreamer that would bring an impractical peace.
Well, now we see what is becoming of this dreamers dream. Obama is straight up Chicago knife fight. He’s a realist, he was very concrete, almost callous, about weighing economic considerations over against humanitarianism.
I was very impressed that he mentioned the arguments of those who disagree with him, as well as that he defended his decision to deliberate and assess strategy before taking action.
