Executive power and national security
Apropos of the conversation prompted by these posts below, Power Line calls our attention to and comments on this WaPo article.
I think Paul Mirengoff has the politics of it just right. For the Democrats actually to affirm that our security situation has improved to the point where the measures taken in the immediate post-9/11 era are no longer necessary requires that they give credit to the Bush Administration for making us safer, which theyre not about to do. By contrast, President Bush has said that we cant drop our guard. So what responsible position can the Democrats take? Their answer seems to be...ask us when were back in power. No thanks.
