BUT IT'S NOT HIS CHOICE:
Decline Is a Choice: The New Liberalism and the end of American ascendancy. (Charles Krauthammer, 10/19/2009, Weekly Standard)
The current liberal ascendancy in the United States--controlling the executive and both houses of Congress, dominating the media and elite culture--has set us on a course for decline. And this is true for both foreign and domestic policies. Indeed, they work synergistically to ensure that outcome.
Were liberalism ascendant they'd have done something with the power they won in November--instead they've followed in W's footsteps--and they wouldn't be terrified of the election next November. A blip isn't a trend. Posted by Orrin Judd at October 12, 2009 6:25 AM
