Obama reminds me of Trudeau in some ways

Reader comment on item: Obama vs. McCain on the Middle East

  • Both have/had very anti-military bias; Trudeau showed his by bribing his way out of conscription in 1939--and later by welcoming American draft-dodgers who fled to Canada
  • Both are disloyal to their nations; Obama camouflages it (when he can), where Trudeau revealed it in full view of CBC and MacLean's cameras (from Mt. Robson) in 1982 (this contributed to the Liberals' defeat in 1984)
