For several weeks now I have been saying that the Romney campaign is inept, and that this will be a huge factor in his impending defeat in November. Apparently, Rupert Murdoch and I agree–at least, on that part.

“The people don’t want war, but they can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism … Continue reading
