Chait makes the obvious point:

Today's Washington Post op-ed page has two more columns lambasting Obama for failing to embrace the demonstrators. Today's offerings are by Charles Krauthammer and Paul Wolfowitz. Neither one of them even mentions, let alone answers, Obama's argument for why embracing the demonstrators would be counterproductive.


That's because they are about attacking the president, and have learned absolutely nothing from their engineered catastrophes of the past eight years.
And how, pray, does a man who pioneered and defended the brutal torture of prisoners in wartime, and enthusiastically backed the pulverization of Gaza last January, have any standing on a question of human rights and democracy?
