Do Not Be Surprised
Rush brought up a good point yesterday, and it has changed my perspective somewhat on the outcome of the most recent election. The Democrats are anti-military. Though the Democrats that overwhelmingly gained new seats sold themselves as centrist, the party at large clearly billed itself as anti-military and extremely left wing. We should not be surprised when they take this approach to governance. The American people, for whatever reason, have voted for change. We, as a people, are highly intelligent. Unfortunately most of us are also highly fickle and only pay cursory attention to politics, getting most information from the NYT, WaPo, CNN, or MSNBC. My major concern is not this, it is that our president may not have the backbone to stand up to them. In the news today, Iran has blared that it's nuclear program is nearly complete. Because of the afforementioned media outlets, we will allow them to become a nuclear armed nation. It is an inevitability, and if the American republic unlike the republic of Rome somehow manages to survive the current siege, it will be a historical anomaly. Already, 5 years after the biggest planned assault of the war against our nation (but far from the first), America has begun it's retreat.

Democrats weren't the only ones celebrating one week ago.

As I stated previously, should the Democrats surprise everyone and show themselves to be a party that cares about the continued survival of this nation, and civilization in general, then grand... we can once again have a reasoned debate on domestic issues, while agreeing to fight the War on Terror abroad. Until then, all we can do is hope the populace is in a good mood in 2008 and opts for the survival of the nation over "change."

I agree. I am worried that Bush will pull his head into his shell and wait out the next two years. This whole Baker Committee/ISG is being pulled together by elements outside the administration, which is giving the appearance that his father, George the Elder, is pulling the strings for the oligarchs.
