The Somalia Syndrome

Our friend Scott Johnson over at Powerline has a post that is not to be missed about the lessons Al Qaida drew from Somalia in 1993.

We need to get over the Vietnam syndrome once and for all. How many elections do the Democrats have to lose until this can be accomplished?

They need to lose one big one. Several small ones won’t do it.

If the Democrats are knocked down to 35 in the Senate, that might do it.

I’m not holding my breath.

The problem is that the Left continues to define itself by its activity during the Vietnam War. The current crop of "adult" lefties grew up in the shadow of Vietnam War protests, the Nixon and Ford administrations, Watergate, and the pro-communist atmosphere the Left created and maintained. Until that crop of losers finally disappears, we will never have the opportunity to exorcise the lunacy they have imprinted on our society.

I think you just identified your next book. Vietnam, errors, misconceptions, influence on the Democrats, influence upon our foreign policy. That should keep you busy.

If you need a research assistant, who brews his own beer by the way, which tastes pretty good.... Contact me. Not gonna get a better offer than that.

Oh and Dave, Bush’s defeat of Kerry WAS A PRETTY BIG ONE.

The Democrats never spent so much, never devoted so much energy and effort to a get out the vote effort, never turned out so many voters to the poll, and still lost. THEY OUTSPENT THE GOP IN OHIO, yet still lost. They had a perceived weak economy, and body bags by the day from Iraq, and still lost. GW’s Debate performance was almost as bad as Ford, {I ask Steve to back me up on that one} and Kerry still lost. Cheney has been villified since being sworn back in 2001. Didn’t matter. Don’t you recall NYTROgate, the Philadelphia Inquirer ran an UNPRECEDENTED 21 day long rant against GW, which they said was their endorsement of Kerry, and Kerry still lost. The last month of that campaign season saw a press that finally shed any vestige of objectivity, and openly came out to drive GW from office, yet Kerry and the Democrats still lost.

Only 3 Democrats have ever exceeded GW’s percentage of the vote, Jackson, FDR and LBJ. And only one of those Presidencies can be considered in modern times.

The triumph of the GOP in 2004 was as important a victory as that of Reagan in ’80. And it was huge, witness Roberts and Alito.

But GW has failed to use that victory to press home his entitlement reforms. And then he decided to go off on a vacation, instead of conducting a whistle stop tour of the country, pressing his war effort, pressing his entitlement reform. So he looked like he was doing nothing, then Katrina came, which seemed to confirm the caricature. And the rest you know. And now we’re here, with his numbers in the 40s, because he has the worst communication team in American history, and he suffers from a seemingly congential condition that prevents him from going out there and aggressively advancing his positions.

Can anyone explain to me the value of NEVER casting A SINGLE VETO of a single piece of legislation? Maybe Steve can help us on that one....


Dan, I agree that Bush is a weaker president than we really need -- a mediocrity in many ways.

We could argue endlessly about whether his very narrow re-election in 2004 was a sign of Republican strength or Republican weakness. It’s kind of a half-empty/half-full debate; both sides may well be right.

But it’s peripheral to the point I made, which is that the problem is the Senate. The Democrats’ fairly solid bloc of 45 allows them to wreak havoc on an administration’s program. Until it is decisively reduced, conservatives will not truly govern this country, or (arguably) even truly control its foreign policy.
