"Any Democrat could have done pretty well . . ."

Don't try to improve on the delectable. From NRO’s Kerry spot
Any Democrat could have done pretty well this year--and would be doing better than Kerry’s doing now--by arguing, “Mr. President, you bet the house on what seemed like a safe bet at the time, that we were going to find WMDs in Iraq. You made your bet, and you came up empty. Now our nation’s credibility is shot, and the buck stops with you. It’s not your fault, but anybody who makes that big a gamble and comes up snake eyes just doesn’t deserve a second term.”
. . . Of course, no Democrat could have or would have made that argument, because that presupposes that Bush is a well-meaning, almost idealistic fellow who did what he thought was right and it just didn’t turn out well. The Democratic base voters’ philosophy is that Bush is simultaneously irredeemably stupid and an evil genius, who LIED and knew that we wouldn’t find WMDs in Iraq, who deliberately destroyed his own 90 percent approval rating just to help out Halliburton.
Oh yeah, and his reelection is the end of the world.
