Will’s nonanalysis

Poor George F. Will — he simply cannot help himself, such does he feel the need to unburden on the subject of Vladimir Putin. Like a headmaster at prep school he will, whether his pupils like it or not, give us a history lesson to end all history lessons (“Misreading Putin, and History,” March 4), all of which comes down to a harp about Obamacare.

Mr. Will’s snidely formulated self-determination history is true to form, i.e., that of the old Tory that he is, wherein all action is limited to the reactionary idea of leaving bad well-enough alone. What’s more, wasn’t it a “conservative” idea not to deploy politics (though it be in the guise of a history lecture) beyond our nation’s shoreline? No, now the right-wing mantra is citing the “weakness” of our foreign policy.

Instead, we get shameless politicization of a serious international crisis instead of quiet analysis.
