Lack of judgment

Hugh Hewitt makes a point that cannot be stressed too much or too often -- the Democrats lack the judgment to understand the disastrous future consequences of their policies and they refuse to learn from or take responsibility for their disasters in the past.

Unfortunately, it really is true of the party as a whole: poor judgment, inability to learn from the past, and a refusal to take resposnibility.

Hewitt compares the disaster that befell Southeast Asia because liberals forced the US to abandon our allies to what might happen in the Mideast if liberals succeed again in forcing the US to abandon allies. He specifically recalls the prediction by John Kerry in his famous testimony before the Senate that only 2 to 3 thousand refugees would result from a communist victory in Vietnam. Instead, the number of victims grew into the millions.

Last fall during the election, I thought this was one of the strongest points that could have been made against voting for Kerry. He has a perfect record of misjudging our enemies. The last thing we need is a president who has proven himself to be a complete failure in the areas of judgment, understanding and responsibility.
