Vacuum is the word. When "the one" kissed Putin's butt by cancelling the defensive missiles to Poland and the Czech Republic in '09...and got bubkis in return, the signalled the beginning of the end. The alarming problem is that the vacuum has devolved into a vortex.

Peace through strength is the key. An exceedingly muscular military and the boldness of character to project it, but at the same time having the self-discipline not to descend into adventurism abroad. This hits all the right notes. By the way an all volunteer military and a floundering economy is not a good recipe for the world's policeman, whatever nation or era.
Obama is the all-time poster boy for Affirmative Action. If everyone in the nation is continually telling you that you are superlative, when in fact you are an inexperienced rube... you take your own press clippings as an article of faith.

Its true that W was a stoic, no matter the invective hurled against him. However, since the electorate is largely composed of low information voters and the relatively disengaged the only way to reach them is at an emotional level. Stoicism is the wrong medium to reach the target audience. Damaging the Democrat brand is the way to go. Professional studies show, negative campaigning works....like it or not.
Tanner also totally misses the political aspect. The open door policy of potentially allowing huge numbers of low information voters to settle without assimilation insures that a conservative government will never come to power again. Until the system completely collapses, that is. How do you spell D-E-T-R-O-I-T ?

The seventh district of Virginia is rated as Republican + 10, which means that there are few low information voters and many well-informed voters. Virginia 7 understands that if the U S Chamber of Commerce gets its comprehensive immigration reform passed that it will be the end of our teetering constitutional republic, traded away for 30 pieces of silver. An abject betrayal by the crony capitalists of all the selfless patriots in our history. They should be deeply, deeply ashamed.

This swap was about having plausible deniability in terms of leaving no man behind. After all, when Hillary runs aren't folks going to charge her and the Dems about leaving men on the battlefield in Benghazi ? And just who was it that had this very secret meeting at the White House about 10 days ago? Omigosh, I think it was the forementioned putative candidate, Hillary. I wonder if the the prospective swap was discussed? Nothing to see here, folks. Just move along.
Sen. Graham says that they will impeach him if he does it again. Wow! Am I impressed ! What's wrong with impeaching him now, Senator ? Talk about no stones. This is why America is dying. No enforcement of the law or the Constitution by the milquetoast political class.
Exchanging for Bergdahl is all about providing cover on Benghazi. Clinton and the lefties are vulnerable to the charge that they view Americans as expendable because they left warriors on the battlefield unsupported. Every time they are charged with that, they will trot out the Bergdahl counterpoint.
