My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Anybody Else Beginning To Sense A Rope-A-Dope?

For about the last four months the right side of the blogosphere has been generally critical of the weak response of the White House to the political attacks of the Left.

But I think the Left may have gotten too comfortable. To wit:

Jack Murtha: the Army is "broken, worn out" and "living hand to mouth,"

John Kerry: And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women,

Howard Dean: the "idea that we're going to win the war in Iraq is an idea which is just plain wrong,"

And that's not to mention all the inane statements by Barbra Boxer, the ridiculous protest of Hillary Clinton (!) by Code Pink because of her support for the war, and anything said recently by Pilosi or Reid.

In his heyday, Muhammed Ali would cover up and back into a corner and let his opponents waste their energy throwing meaningless punches into his arms for a couple minutes. Eventually, sensing their fatigue, he would come back with a vicious and surgical couterattack while his opponent would keep swinging wildly--out of power and realizing too late their error. Shortly thereafter the fight would typically end.

Don't those statements above reek of "swinging wildly", waiting for the knockout punch? Or is it just me?

Perhaps Karl Rove never went away. [Assume voice of Emperor Palpatine]: "Events are proceeding exACTly as I have foreen."
