A New Political Tactic?

The current rhetoric in the debates and in Congress sounds more and more like:
"Support whatever Obama opposes 
and oppose whatever Obama supports".

Now listen to Mao Tsetung: "Interview with Three Correspondents from the Central News Agency, 
the Sao Tang Pao and the Hsin Min Pao" (September 16, 1939), Selected Works, Vol. II, p. 272.
"We should support whatever the enemy opposes 
and oppose whatever the enemy supports."

Is this really the best we can do?
