JACKSONIANS ON THE WAR: Disappointment over unwillingness to fight hard enough? That sounds right to me, as I’ve observed a similar phenomenon and commented on it in the past. It’s certainly Bill Quick’s complaint: “a half-assed, one-hand-tied-behind-our-backs, safe haven, ‘war’ he has neither the guts nor the intention to wage to the fullest, or to completion.” I’m not quite sure that was Webb’s point, though.
UPDATE: An alternate text for Webb. Heh. Webb’s brave, but not that brave.
