MOOSEMUSS. Yes, MOOSEMUSS. That is what came to mind when the discussion amongst the right about the Harriet Miers nomination went into full tilt yesterday MOOSEMUSS.
Hat tip to Mr. Atos for planting the seed with his Bangalore Torpedo piece, and after all the rancor yesterday, I thought, MOOSEMUSS.
I dont buy the theory that in an instant, that the President, who incidentally, got the GWOT right, and the John Roberts nomination right, who has Dick Cheney as his VP and Condi Rice as his SOS blew a gasket and has gotten this completely wrong. I thought maybe MOOSEMUSS.
I think that the President had many possible choices here, but I think he chose to be a bit more devious than he is being given credit for. I think he, as Mr. Atos points out, is taking this opportunity to covertly attack the leadership and structure of the Democrat base. Why do I think that? MOOSEMUSS.
MOOSEMUSS is the easily learned acronym that highlights the nine, generally accepted, Principles of War. Notice I didnt say battle. Battle a general encounter between armies, ships of war, or airplanes. War a period of declared and open hostilities. For the uninitiated, fighting wars protracted periods of combat, and fighting battles encounters between warring forces, are two entirely different matters and require two entirely different schemes. One, war, requires strategic thinking, and battles, require tactical thinking. These are two entirely different operational levels.
So, when I think MOOSEMUSS, I am not considering the tactical, I am considering the strategic.
Lets look at the Miers nomination and see if, somehow, the guy who got the GWOT, may also get the Principles of War, when it comes to waging a long term strategic campaign against the Democrats.
