Everything His President Wants to Hear  —  General Betray Us?  Of course he has.  MoveOn.org can hardly be expected to recycle its slogan from last September, when Gen. David Petraeus testified in support of escalating the U.S. war in Iraq, given the hysterical denunciations that worthy group received at the time.

The New Liberal Taboo  —  What a spectacle.  It is now respectable for Democrats to assert, even to welcome, military defeat (see here).  But if a Presidential campaign functionary so much as hints at support for free trade, he's banished to policy exile.  —  That's the meaning …

What Is the Cost of Freedom?  —  Surprise, surprise.  Having failed to penetrate General Petraeus's story about the great improvements on the ground in Iraq, liberals are now trying to make the case that the cost of the Iraq war may have somehow undermined the economy, and even caused the current slowdown.
