I hate conventional wisdom, because it means nothing, it is like a poll, its what some people say “everybody” thinks at a given moment.
Over the last few years we have been told that a military strike against Iran would inflame the Arab Street, how it would destabilize the entire area. How nobody would be with us. This has been the case.
Today on Morning Joe Bob Woodward and Eugene Robinson discussing WikiLeaks are saying with a straight face that OF COURSE we know that the Arab nations want us to strike at Iran and of Course, everybody already knew this.
I never cease to be amazed that our liberal friends think our attention span and our memory is so short that we don’t recall the old arguments that were once made by icons of the left.
I don’t know what is more disturbing, that they take us for such fools or that some people give these guys credibility.
Conventional Wisdom is what everybody knows is true, right up to the moment when it is not.
