I guess it depends on what you mean by “spiking the football”:

Ever since this statement by Biden, I’ve been thinking, yeah except for …

Victor Davis Hanson articulates some of these “except fors”:

an “undertaking” “undertaken” greater than the decision to drop the bomb on Hiroshima, to stop North Korea from obliterating the south, to confront the Soviet Union over its missiles in Cuba, to send troops to recover Kuwait, or to conduct the surge in Iraq?

I’ll add some:

an “undertaking” “undertaken” greater than the decision to resupply Israel in 1973 despite threats from the Soviet Union, to drop special forces into an Afghanistan controlled by the Taliban, to send Doolittle’s Raiders over Tokyo, to launch the Berlin Airlift, or to land troops at Normandy?

The list could go on and on, but not if you think history started with Barack Obama’s election (except for the bad stuff which started with Bush).

The self-centered arrogance of this administration is beyond imagination.  And it starts from the top.
