An aphorism is a saying, a maxim, an adage; something so old and well-worn that it has become a cliché. Such is “caught between a rock and a hard place” which is where we find the Democrats in Congress. The angry left has made it clear that they want the military out of Iraq right now! They want Bush and Cheney impeached right now! No Blood for oil!
The American people have made it clear that they don’t care to have the American military lose a war. They want the military to come home when the job is done. In fact, the American military ranks pretty high with the American people, higher than the media, academe, or Congress. Oops!
You have, perhaps, noticed Harry Reid announcing that the War on Terror is lost, just as the ‘surge’ is shown to be working. Nancy Pelosi has announced that al Qaeda is only in Afghanistan just as Osama bin Laden admits that the “darkness has become pitch-black”, and the situation for al Qaeda in Iraq has become dire. Well, it’s hard to be right all the time. But if you can’t get it right occasionally, the rock and the hard place begin to squeeze uncomfortably. For more on this story, go here.
This is, however, exactly what is meant by being caught between a rock and a hard place.
And, naturally, it all comes from the media that keeps on about the animosity and disarray to be found in the Republican Party. I seem to remember another aphorism–something about pots and kettles. There’s a reason why your grandmother taught you all those old sayings. They form the guardrails of life.
