"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

War of the Analogies: The Problem Isn't Mr. Maliki - The Editors

The Editors at The Times continue on about Iraq and contribute with fuel to the fire during the "War of the Analogies."

According to them:

"Blaming the prime minister of Iraq, rather than the president of the United States, for the spectacular failure of American policy, is cynical politics, pure and simple. It is neither fair nor helpful in figuring out how to end America’s biggest foreign policy fiasco since Vietnam."
Their closing two cents:
"If Mr. Bush, whose decision to inject Vietnam into the debate over Iraq was bizarre, took the time to study the real lessons of Vietnam, he would not be so eager to lead America still deeper into the 21st century quagmire he has created in Iraq. Following his path will not rectify the mistakes of Vietnam, it will simply repeat them.
"Bizarre" they call it..."inject Vietnam" have they no shame? Do they just forget what is necessary to pump their trash out?

I'm pretty sure the board hasn't been too pleased with Maliki in the recent past...have they forgotten?

The msm is really kicking it up a notch as it fights to avoid a loss; why are they so in it for themselves? Very strange indeed...
