First, Admit the Problem

Here’s the mistake made by President Obama and the Democrats that nobody is talking about: They have been too fearful of confronting our country’s three-year obsession with the wrong problem.

In terms of advanced and unchallenged military power, there has been nothing like the U.S. armed forces since the Mongols swept across Eurasia. No wonder American presidents now regularly use phrases like “the finest fighting force the world has ever known” to describe it.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is pretty peeved at President Obama over allegations that the National Security Agency has been monitoring her cellphone. Although the White House denies these actions, German intelligence investigators believe Merkel has reason to be upset.

The opinion polls were clear. One after another, they showed that Americans opposed the shutdown and were hurting because of it. Nearly one in three said they felt personally affected not by too much government, but by too little.

Not a Good Fight

President Obama’s victory this week was as complete and devastating as Sherman’s march through the South. But there is no early sign that the zealots of the anti-government far right have learned the lessons of their defeat—which means that more battles lie ahead.
