The problem with ideologues is that they tend to put ideology ahead of results when their policies fail to work. This was perfectly illustrated by Jennifer Rubin’s Jan. 6 Right Turn blog excerpt [“What mattered most in 2013,” op-ed] on the economic sanctions arrayed against Iran. In one sentence, “Sanctions have not dislodged the regime nor caused it to rethink its nuclear arms ambitions.” Then, a paragraph later, “Congress can pass sanctions over White House objections and thereby force Iran to capitulate.” What do they say about the definition of insanity?
