Daily Blog Buzz: Winnie the Pooh and Obama, Too

Obama's National Security Council?
Hot Air's Allahpundit asks, "Exit question: If it stops causing you much pain, is it safe to stick with it?"
No, it's not. Blogger Jon at Exurban League says, "We live in a world of medieval fascists who promise to rain destruction upon us and our allies. Rogue regimes rapidly acquiring nuclear weaponry. Unstable governments who could turn against us overnight. And the Democratic administration in waiting is talking about Hunny Pots and Heffalumps?" And Townhall's Carol Platt Liebau adds, "Well, let's just hope that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is as charmed by the philosophy of the 'little cuddly all stuffed with fluffies' as the Obama team is."
NRO's Jim Geraghty says that Obama "would be wise to articulate a national security policy that relied more on personal meetings with Gen. David Petraeus and less on reading Winnie the Pooh." And at Contentions, Jennifer Rubin adds that he should "get rid of advisors who make people wonder if he is really ready to sit at the grown-up's table." But I, for one, will sleep more soundly knowing that the Obama administration would base security decisions on a children's story about stuffed animals.
