Orson’s Game

Think what it will mean if we elect a Democratic candidate who has committed himself to an anti-war posture in order to get his party’s nomination.
Our enemies will be certain that they are winning the war on the battleground that matters — American public opinion. So they will continue to kill Americans wherever and whenever they can, because it works.
Our soldiers will lose heart, because they will know that their commander-in-chief is a man who is not committed to winning the war they have risked death in order to fight. When the commander-in-chief is willing to call victory defeat in order to win an election, his soldiers can only assume that their lives will be thrown away for nothing. That’s when an army, filled with despair, becomes beatable even by inferior forces.
Patriots place their loyalty to their country in time of war ahead of their personal and party ambitions. And they can wrap themselves in the flag and say they “support our troops” all they like — but it doesn’t change the fact that their program is to promote our defeat at the hands of our enemies for their temporary political advantage.
