Charles Krauthammer’s recent column has an excellent analysis of President Obama’s first televison interview as President. Here’s a link http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/01/29/AR2009012903444.html?hpid=opinionsbox1
Obama’s desire to return American-Islamic relation to their state 20-30 years ago is misstated at best. Likely, it is intellectually lazy “code” to his supporters who have been led to believe that everything outside Reagan-Bush years is good and everything included in that time period is bad.
At worst, he wishes to return to a time of American humiation at the hands of Islamic terrorists.
