Hollow Rhetoric and the Right

Charles Krauthammer finds President Obama's rhetoric insufficiently aggressive:

I find myself repeatedly stunned by how important hollow rhetoric and lofty promises are to some in the neoconservative community. Indeed, most of their own suggestions--such as extended ambassadorial "holidays," and so on--are mostly symbolic and ultimately fail to match the level of condemnation they'd prefer to hear from Obama.

President Bush gave several lovely speeches about democracy and freedom spreading in Ukraine, Georgia, Afghanistan and beyond. Those words may have made several pundits and politicians feel good about themselves, but they have yielded little for the actual people living in these allegedly burgeoning utopias.

I personally prefer some rhetorical restraint coupled with actual policy options.
