Hypocrisy, thy name is bush…

…The dipstick occupying the White House recently said that all he knows about Obama's foreign policy ideas was "he wants to embrace Iran's president and bomb our ally, Pakistan." (paraphrasing)

So take a gander at this from the titled, "U.S. Steps Up Unilateral Strikes in Pakistan.":
The United States has escalated its unilateral strikes against al-Qaeda members and fighters operating in Pakistan's tribal areas, partly because of anxieties that the country's new leaders will insist on a scaling back of military operations in that country, according to U.S. officials.

Washington is worried that pro-Western President Pervez Musharraf, who has generally supported the U.S. strikes, will almost certainly have reduced powers in the months ahead, and so it wants to inflict as much damage as it can to al-Qaeda's network now, the officials said.
Now that's some fine foreign policy for ya, huh?

Maybe he should adopt more of Obama's ideas.
