George Will on Conservatism and Nation Building Overseas: Quote of the Month!

"And conservatism seems to be saying government can’t run Amtrak, but it can run the Middle East." -George Will

Exactly! If conservatives don't believe government can possibly run Amtrak, public radio, Fannie Mae, food stamp programs, or the American health care system with any level of efficiency or success, what on earth has possessed them for the last decade to believe that the government could possibly have any success running the Middle East?

Got this quote from an excellent op ed by Jack Hunter entitled, "Was Bill Buckley a foreign policy leftist?"
