Re: 'There Was Once A Time When Politics Ended At Our Shores'Topics: Political News and commentaries
As Rodney Graves writes over at Wizbang that there was once an understanding that National Security and Foreign Affairs were matters of National Interest of such magnitude that domestic politics treated them sparingly. The understanding was that politics on the domestic scene should leave room for the Executive to effectively set such policies subject to the advice and consent of the Senate, and that both parties would refrain from poisoning the well.
And as Rodney goes on to note, that remained the case ... until Democrats reduced National Security and Foreign Policy to merely another political tool to attack their domestic opponents ... and damn the consequences to the Republic.
In fact, one could say that such is the case with the Democratic Party in general .... it's now all about politics and attacking political opponents ... and damned with the consequences to our nation, be it foreign affairs, immigration, energy, the economy, or spending the nation into bankruptcy.
