Josh Marshall made a good point on his blog:
“Then thereâ€™s the presidentâ€™s great line from the speech: â€˜It is now clear that a challenge on this scale requires greater federal authority and a broader role for the armed forces.â€™â€™â€™
“No, itâ€™s not. Actually, every actual fact thatâ€™s surfaced in the last two weeks points to just the opposite conclusion. There was no lack of federal authority to handle the situation. There was faulty organization, poor coordination and incompetence. . . .
“You donâ€™t repair disorganized or incompetent government by granting it more power. You fix it by making it more organized and more competent. If conservatism canâ€™t grasp that point, what is it good for?”
Right at this moment, I think itâ€™s hard for a lot of people to come up with an answer for that one.
