The British were already

The British were already blockading the East coast long before the Embargo Act. Criticizing Jefferson (Madison was really in control most of the 2nd term) would be like criticizing Iran for having an embargo against the US today.

Thomas Jefferson 1796, 1800, 1804; James Madison 1808, 1812; Ron Paul 1988, 2008, 2012; Rand Paul 2016.
