Great! (rubbing hands together) So what's your plan?
June 27, 2005
From the Omaha World-Herald:
"'What we don't want to happen is for this to end up another Vietnam,' Hagel told the legionnaires, 'because the consequences would be catastrophic.' It would be far worse than Vietnam, says Hagel, a twice-wounded veteran of that conflict, which killed 58,000 Americans."Matt Yglesias comments: "Good for him. Nevertheless, I've lost my patience with this stuff. We're long past the point at which it's been made clear that this sort of rhetorical warning shot isn't going to cause the president to change course. So what's Hagel going to do about it? He's a United States Senator, not just some powerless pundit. What's his plan? These are the questions people need to be asking the moderate Republicans." (TPM Cafe)
