A Voice From The Past

Victor Davis Hanson teaches the classics. Here is a wonderful look at the present through the eyes of an ancient Greek general, Thucydides. Tough reading, but well worth it. This essay was originally published on 11/27/01.

Dick Morris on algore

Once again Dick Morris proves himself one of the most astute political analysts in the country.

Here’s my favorite quote:

The way to get a Democrat to destroy his own chances of winning is to get his liberal constituency hot and angry and lead it to demand that its representatives stand up and be counted for a liberal, unpopular position. It was just such a quandary that led Mike Dukakis into his famous opposition to the death penalty in the 1988 election and that enticed Hillary ever leftward on health care in 1994.

And That Brings Us to Today

Tom Daschle had what’s being called a meltdown on the Senate floor today. Here’s a transcript, and here is the President’s words that got Mr Daschle all hot and bothered.

This is not so much a response to Mr Bush, but a response to algore! It’s about Democratic Presidential politics, and trying desperately to hold on to the Senate in November. It’s also a response to multiple liberal pundits who are asking what the heck the Democratic stands for, and when will they start standing up for it. The latest is David Broder, Monday in the Washington Post. This follows on the heels of the devastating article a couple of weeks ago in The New Republic.

I wish I was an editorial cartoonist on days like today. The picture would be the HMS Titanic, with Joe Lieberman as lookout, screaming, “Iceberg Dead Ahead!” Algore as Captain Smith, screaming “Steer hard left!” and Tom Daschle as the helmsman turning the wheel as far left as it goes. This week, with algore and Daschle, we may well have seen the pacifist Democrats hitting the iceberg. Oh, and the name on the iceberg? Iraq.

The Contrast

An amazing contrast to Algore is the speech Tony Blair made before The British House of Commons. This is just an exerpt of the speech. Here is the complete Iraq Dossier directly from 10 Downing Street. Take note of the satellite photography of the chemical and biological weapons factories. And where does the money come from to pay for the proof presented by our friends the British? According to The Wall Street Journal, from The United Nations.

Here’s the first paragraph:

Who is Saddam Hussein’s biggest business partner?

The United Nations. The same U.N. whose secretary-general, Kofi Annan, stands as one of the chief ditherers over removing Saddam. Here are the ingredients of a conflict of interest.

Continue the story. It will reinforce the President’s case for possible unilateral action.
