Why not make the public just want to throw in the towel on the Republican "experience"?

I think that's exactly it. I mean, which of us isn't just sick of reading about non-stop crises. Some of us recall when Richard Nixon, near the end of his presidency, came down with phlebitis. Newsweek did a cover with a caption like "Now, Illness . . . " which translates, "Here's even more bad news about Tricky Dick." I think that's how most people finally took it: Nixon was unrelenting bad news.

Rampant abuse of freedoms leads inexorably to curtailment of those freedoms--in other words, a backlash to dictatorship. It's happened before in history. You can't have liberty without wisdom--and it seems our press is sorely lacking in sagacity.
