The Journal Gazette can’t bring itself to endorse Mike Pence for Congress. After praising Pence’s opponent for having better views on such things as health care and the economy, the JG says this:
It is the war and his position on it that should give voters concern about Pence. Pence, who has shown admirable skepticism, courage and independence on other matters, has accepted without challenge the current strategy despite the failures in Iraq and Afghanistan.
All right, which one of you forgot to tell the JG that the surge worked, the war is pretty much over and we seemed to have actually won it? I know it wasn’t my turn.
Not so good in Afghanistan — we can grant them that one.
