The 2012 election was not decided because of foreign policy issues, but foreign policy hawkishness and the legacy of the Bush administrationís multiple failures were real liabilities for the Romney campaign and the party as a whole. These will continue to be liabilities for future Republican tickets unless party leaders recognize this and make the necessary changes. That will involve repudiating a lot of the foreign policy of the Bush era, and adopting in its place a foreign policy defined by restraint and prudence.

It is possible that the damage among younger voters has already been done such that these cohorts are lost to the GOP for many elections to come, but there is virtually no chance of winning them and future cohorts of voters if the partyís foreign policy remains what it is. Failing to reform Republican foreign policy will have effects beyond the relatively small portion of the electorate that votes on these issues, because the perception of incompetence and recklessness on these issues will sabotage the partyís efforts to repair its overall reputation.

The Republican weakness on foreign policy isnít simply that Republican candidates favor many unpopular policies, but that most Americans donít trust that Republicans wonít agitate for new, unnecessary wars in the future. Most Americans would presumably still endorse a message of ďpeace through strength,Ē but they have to be able to believe that Republican leaders are interested in preserving the peace rather than finding excuses for destroying it. Where Republicans were once considered sober, responsible stewards, most of their foremost spokesmen on foreign policy are now correctly regarded as dangerous and intoxicated with ideological fantasies.

It isnít just that most of their preferred policies are substantively bad, as important as that is, but that most Americans reasonably expect the worst from them when they are in power. It will take some significant effort to get things to a point where a majority at least gives Republicans the benefit of the doubt on these issues. So far, the partyís leaders havenít been making any effort to reform their foreign policy, and the Republican figures that have the most to say on foreign policy are daily moving the party in the wrong direction. There is still a window for Republican foreign policy reform, but it will close quickly if no leading Republicans take advantage of it.

There a funny story of two confederate regiments at Fredricksburg or Gettysburg or someplace and one of them wore Blue uniforms, cleverly, so the other unit across the field turned the cannons on them and started blasting away. Well, the affronted blue-uniformed sojurs, proceeded to turn their cannons on the other group and for twenty minutes or so they blazed away at each other with predictable results. Finally a member of the General Staff comes galloping up and screams at them, "Stop firing! They're with us!" The offended confederate officer in charge relied, "We know they are but at this point it's a matter of principle!" In the event of another Civil War, we only need to remember this scene from history. We need only turn them against themselves.

The war got called off. None of these right wing morons can figure out WHO they'er going to shoot. These so-called Patriots can't shoot agents of a constitutionally installed government, can they?

Sounds like southerners.

They were willing to burn their own capital rather than let the union take it.

So... let's say there is a Civil War. And let's say... someone from the.. um... Southern Baptist Theological Seminary starts posting on Twitter, "HELP, HELP! The Yankees are here trying to take away our guns! You can identify us by our uniforms: we'll be dressed like police! The gun collectors will be dressed like students, in sedate uniforms and comfortable shoes. Don't be fooled! Shoot on sight! Come around... 8:30. Thanks!
