Really? GW quit his position, went back to Mt. Vernon, trademarked his name, wrote a book, went on a book tour and spent the rest of the war kibbutzing from the sidelines? I don't remember learning that part.
GW owned slaves...you fell better now wtc911
Two different theaters of conflict, two different strategies. Sarah's theater is news cycles and election cycles. Writing books, trademarking, and speaking to any group that will listen, and building a war chest to take on the bad guys is part of her theater of operations.
Let us not forget that GW ended his battles the richest man in America, mostly through land grabs in the Ohio valley during the Indian Wars and a strategic marriage. After getting his rear end handed to him early in Revolutionary War, GW ran from every major battle opportunity the Brits offered him for years - and wisely so. Retreat, retreat, retreat, I win. Today, we refer to it a defense in depth. Invite your adversary to over extend themselves, then wear him down.
I do see parallels between what Sarah is doing and GWs campaign. The fact that they both assured that they end up well propertied is not a knock on either’s character. Good for them both.
