Ouch. The money quote:
“Those of us who were bewitched by his eloquence on the campaign trail chose to ignore some disquieting aspects of his biography: that he had accomplished very little before he ran for president,” he wrote.
And yet the bewitched thought it was freaking ludicrous that someone who had only been mayor of a small town and governor for a couple of years could be considered fit to be Vice President.
UPDATE: Even when the stars are finally knocked out of their eyes, some on the left remain so historically-challenged that they can’t remember the state of play from just a couple of years ago. In the course of telling us that he should have voted for Hillary, one Bill McClellan throws in this whopper: “It’s too easy to blame Republicans. Yes, they have blocked Obama at every turn, but that is the way of things in politics.”
Um, didn’t the Democrats control the presidency and both houses of Congress for two full years? Republicans didn’t block the Democrats’ agenda. They couldn’t. They enacted a disasterous spending regime and then got tossed out.
