Bill Bennett – An Open Letter to the Democratic party

July 23rd, 2004 · 1 Comment

William J. Bennett on Democrats on National Review Online

Go back to your roots as you plan your speeches for Boston, as you prepare your campaign to replace President Bush. Re-embrace your concern for human rights abroad with your willingness to use force to defend those rights. Propose alternative foreign-policy strategies that can build off of our successes in Iraq and Afghanistan

    “Hypocrisy is a fashionable vice, and all fashionable vices pass for virtue.”—Moliere

    Where are all the essays where Mr. Bennett—such the master of virtue—has criticized the Republican Party and President Bush with the same heat he’s criticized Democrats over the years?

    Nothing. Zero. Zilch. That’s about Bennett’s level of credibility with this Karl Rove-on-Ecstasy, tiresome essay.

    (And there would be Republicans whom the Dems would respectfully listen to—Senator John McCain is the first to come to mind. David Brooks is another.)
