— Ace By the blogger Real Ugly American.
Mort is a disaffected liberal; he's not a rightie by any means, but he's annoyed enough by liberals that he's pretty fair and moderate. In fact, I have to say Mort Kondracke is more or less the exact political middle of this country. Like an ideological Missouri.
Which doesn't mean I agree with him on every point. I just mean only that-- he's right in the actual middle. The liberals in the MSM would be wise to look to him to determine what true centrism is.
Anyway, his reason for breaking with liberals is interesting:
... it was actually the Vietnam War the end of the Vietnam War that made me stop being a liberal most of all. I was covering the Ford White House when the North Vietnamese began their final offensive against South Vietnam, and I remember President Ford asking congress for 600 million dollars to help the South Vietnamese to fight their way, to save themselves, and congress refused and the minute congress refused the South Vietnamese army through down their weapons and ran. And that was the end. And I was just so disgusted with the Democrats at that point that I said you know what do Democrats do but spend money you know and to save an ally they werent even willing to commit money so thats when I bailed. And even before then I thought the Soviet Union was a menace and that it had to be resisted so I have been a foreign policy hawk for a long time.
He talks a lot about media bias and Bush derangement.
Thanks to Dan from Riehl World View.
