Waterloo

Former Bush speechwriter David Frum thinks the passage of health care will be the Waterloo that Jim DeMint spoke of. Unfortunately, he says, it will be the GOP suffering the defeat.

We followed the most radical voices in the party and the movement, and they led us to abject and irreversible defeat.

Here's the question: when the GOP wins a bunch of seats in 2010, (which they will do no matter what happens on health care, majorities this large aren't sustainable) will they take it as vindication for their strategy? Frum sees it as a failure, but the GOP may see it as success.

  1. They will certainly frame it as a success for the public, anyway.
