Napoleon and Obama

When Napoleon marched on Moscow in 1812, he had 600,000 troops. After defeat, only 40,000 frost-bitten and half starved survivors stumbled back into France. Are Democrats setting themselves up for this kind of debacle? Hopefully so.

Passage of the unpopular health bill could sink them. Their big gamble might be as disastrous as Napoleon’s, Rahm Emanuel’s optimism notwithstanding. Over-reaching has its perils.
