Christopher Horner on Tom Daschle’s

Christopher Horner on Tom Daschle’s performance yesterday on Fox News Sunday. It seems that Tony Snow got Daschle to admit that he has voted with President Bush on all of the key issues that prompt the Europeans to complain about the U.S. — the Kyoto protocol, the International Criminal Court, and Iraq. Yet Daschle still finds merit in the European grievances because of our “attitude.” And what is the “attitude” that Daschle finds so objectionable? The fact that we decide “on a unilateral basis what the U.S. position is going to be.” Thus, as Horner observes, “Daschle seemed to abdicate any meaningful concept of U.S. self-determination or sovereignty, largely in the futile name of making others more approving of us.”
