It's just the intellectual bankruptcy on the right. They have no real ideas, no alternatives, they simply want to attack the other side and say no. They also have a big problem: votes. They know they are going to be out of power for a long time unless they can cause failure and misery. So in the end, there is no real intellectual debate, you will get what you are seeing here: poorly drawn conclusions masquerading as some kind of objective reasoning when it is simply poor reasoning stretched to make a point whose purpose is to malign the opposite side.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
