Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America sigh as Democrats repeatedly interrupt the start of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings in a futile attempt to delay him from joining the court.  They also give John Kerry credit for explaining how President Obama’s failure to enforce the red line over chemical weapons in Syria led to major diplomatic headaches.  And they respond to calls for Meghan McCain to replace her father in the U.S. Senate by saying such seats are not family heirlooms and any family members who wants to serve should have to get elected.

     The difference between Republicans and Democrats on foreign policy is that, when Republicans enter office, they already know how the world works; while Democrats need years to learn what Republicans already know.  Or rather, Democrats need years to unlearn what they think they already know. 

     It took years for Truman to figure out that the Communists were the bad guys, but by that time China was already lost, in what may someday be considered the greatest failure in the history of American foreign policy. 

     Then there’s LBJ’s bungling versus Nixon’s success in Vietnam (though Democrats in Congress succeeded in forcing an American defeat anyway); Jimmy Carter finally recognizing the Soviet threat in his last year in office; Bill Clinton refusing to make terrorism a priority; right up to Obama chickening out in Syria.
