Nobel Peace Prize winner to aides: Let’s face it, I’m really good at killing people « Hot Air: "Ace is right, of course, that this same soundbite coming from Bush would have caused an eruption of left/media shirt-rending about his cowboy “swagger” having supposedly turned sociopathic. As it is, there was a bit of liberal hand-wringing this weekend on Twitter when the story first broke — just as there was when he joked a few years ago about using drones to murder the Jonas brothers — but otherwise, no biggie. It’s the same mindset that led Jane Mayer to give Obama basically a total pass on extrajudicial killings after his lame Hamlet shtick over drones this past May. A liberal intellectual can have lapses in judgment but those lapses can never really add up to an indictment of one’s character. Bush boasting that he’s good at killing people is proof that he’s psychotic; Obama doing it is “troubling,” but the consternation is eased by the fact that he seems really conflicted ‘n stuff in his public remarks."
