The Democrats' Problem

Gerard Baker puts it better than I have:

But the catastrophe of Vietnam, and the uneasy sense it produced that many Democrats were not really on America’s side, left a searing impression on the party and the nation. For the next 40 years, Democrats were considered unsafe. . . .

Posturing — as the party did this week in the Senate, trying to pass nonbinding resolutions that condemn the war but offer no alternatives — will end up only reminding voters what they distrusted about Democrats.

Amongst the victims of the Democrat left:

The Cambodian Killing fields
The Vietnamese Boat people
Approximately 58, 000 dead GI's who were killed by the efforts of Kerry, Fonda and their ilk who convinced the enemy that America was a nation of wimps
Every GI who came home to disrespect, hostility and total apathy
Worldwide disrespect of America

And now they're doing it again?
