In a post yesterday which almost ghaspingly defends the, quite frankly, neo-fascistic Liz Cheney campaign against the fundamental tenets of American jurisprudence, William Kristol says:
"Carville and Greenberg judge that 'The decline in both the presidential and Democratic approval ratings on security issues has been driven, at least in part, by strong Republican attacks on some specific policies and actions.' "
Okay. Fine. But the reason for the decline over the past few weeks in a sense of national safety under the stewardship of President Obama and Attorney General Holder is that those attacks were, at their very core, the kind of thing one used to expect from thugs, punks and Birchers. Not only are they manipulative, but, they disrespect more than two centuries of American legal ideals.
When an openly right wing idealogue like Ken Starr says this is fundamentally wrong on a traditionally center-left wing outlet, perhaps it is time to admit that you are, in point of fact, wrong.
