I am starting at the end, but you should read this piece from the very beginning, from Lords86, Red State: Unless and until President Obama quits playing games with national security, he will give Dick Cheney ample reason to keep calling his bluff.

One of the most important, yet most frequently violated, laws of punditry is that your own priorities and preferences aren’t always relevant. I would love it if the GOP dedicated itself to cutting government by two-thirds, leaving only a minimal social safety net, a big honking military, and a few other bells and whistles for […]

Bush, written just after the inauguration and posted at Pajamas Media, it is flat out amazing the number of people who have come to the conclusion that that prediction was spot on.
