Single Combat. With Harry Reid?

McClellan or Grant? MacArthur and Patton. Attrition and maneuver.

In a Tech Central Station article by Kenneth Silber on Douglas MacArthur titled He Has Returned, is this quote: "War's very object is victory, not prolonged indecision. In war, there is no substitute for victory. MacArthur said the above in his 1951 address to a joint session of Congress, after he had been relieved of command by President Truman. "
MacArthur's overstepping Truman's authority notwithstanding, who, (as Silber wrote), was permeated with indecision about Korea( a seperate issue), the point here is victory. The delaying tactics and nonsense from the Wormtongue Democrats must be ended.

Has Harry hurled a gauntlet or just an empty glove? Leave it in the dirt. Make him pick it up himself. Outmaneuver Dusty and force the Dems to retreat both on the judges and his line in the sand nonsense about "shutting down the Senate's business" Why take him head on? Single combat, with Harry Reid?

Above all, quit hesitating. To quote another General, " A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week. "
