Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Remember when Democrats were anti-preemptive wars?

Good times, good times.  From Matt Welch:

“We knew that…if we waited one more day, Benghazi, a city nearly the size of Charlotte, could suffer a massacre that would have reverberated across the region and stained the conscience of the world,” the president said last night. “It was not in our national interest to let that happen. I refused to let that happen….Some nations may be able to turn a blind eye to atrocities in other countries. The United States of America is different. And as president, I refused to wait for the images of slaughter and mass graves before taking action.”

Do you remember when Democrats recoiled at the doctrine of preemptive war? Last night was the final reminder that, with the exception of some diehards like Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), Democrats when wielding power are only against Republican preemptive war. If anything, they are more promiscuous in choosing conflicts than their warmaking brethren on the other side of the aisle; just less likely to go all-in with ground troops. Does it satisfy the consciences of Bush-hating interventionists merely that Obama made more nice-sounding comments about subsuming America’s lead role within a United Nations-blessed coalition? And have they thought through even for one moment the kind of bar-lowering precedent they’re setting for the next Republican president to send ground troops into wherever the hell?

You know, if I didn’t know any better, I’d swear that Democrats where more interested in the party label of the Commander-in-Chief than they were in actual military objectives or national interest!

Welch finishes off the illogical imbeciles of the left thusly:

And for those Democrats who are either cheering on or grimly supporting the president’s actions, just remember this: Unless a Ron Paul-type miraculously emerges from the GOP field, the next Republican president now has an even lower bar than before when it comes to launching a preemptive war. There’s a reason why the biggest fans of last night’s speech were hawks like William Kristol: If you didn’t like Iraq, you really won’t like Iran. And when that day comes, please don’t debase yourselves by crying crocodile tears over the Constitution, or pretending for even one second you are anti-war.

I don’t know what Welch is worried about. It’s not like the left is a gang of hypocrites or inconsistent cretins, right? For those of you on the left, the prior sentence was an example of sarcasm.

  1. Liberals are incapable of defending this nation…look at their current course of action: Cut military spending while at war, but pay for Cowboy Poetry. And the republicans who want to cut military spending while at war…seriously? At least, how can ya cut troop forces during a war? Slash DOE by 50 %, 70 % (or 100%) before you ever look to reduce troop counts during a stinking WAR!
    Hey, did the French surrender yet?
