Instead of attempting to explain why talking to terrorists is easy to misinterpret and how the “politics of hope” mean reaching out to former enemies, Obama quickly fires and severs all ties with an adviser who held meetings with Hamas.

It looks like Obama has finally recognized that it’s politically suicidal to try and provide nuanced, reasonable explanations for things like this and has instead adopted the standard campaign policy of immediate, overwhelming response to all burgeoning scandal-fodder. Which bodes well for his general election hopes.
