Good Cop/Bad Cop

As Rebecca Solnit put it  in admonishing the Left to support Obama’s re-election: Obama may be   killing innocent children abroad, but that’s not new for American   presidents (!!), and Obama at least is promoting health care in ways   that Mitt Romney wouldn’t.

In other words, even if the Democrats  and the Republicans are not distinguishable in terms of foreign policy,  at least with the Democrats you get more humane domestic policies.

These  supposed differences in domestic policies between the two parties are  taken for granted as conventional wisdom, but upon closer examination a  very different picture emerges…
