History: Part III Defeating the Defeatists

Hat tip to Powerline for this, from Thomas Sowell.
Senator John Kerry loudly proclaimed on "Meet the Press" that the Iraqi election represented President Bush's "last chance" to "get it right." Nothing is easier than to demand more from somebody else -- even when you yourself have been an obstacle to achieving what has already been achieved.

Senator Kerry has a long record as a defeatist and obstructionist. Back in 1971, he said, "we cannot fight communism all over the world" -- adding in the same arrogant tone he uses today, "I think we should have learned that lesson by now."

Ronald Reagan never learned that lesson -- and hundreds of millions of human beings are free of communist tyranny today as a result. But during all the years when President Reagan was building up our military forces and our intelligence agencies, Senator Kerry was consistently voting against the appropriations required to do so.

This is most definitely the column I wish I had written. And, here from Dennis Prager, The Left is Worth Nothing. There is simply too much in this column to pull an excerpt. Read the whole thing. Then, if it makes you angry, read it again, slowly, and tell me where Dr. Prager has erred, if you can.
