Mr. Henry’s latest piece, “Back to Basics” (2/24), was indispensable in its retelling the immediate aftermath of September 11, 2001, and the seeming disregard of it by those who would abandon the security of this nation to others. But the line that really hit the nail on the head was his last, referring to the peace-at-any-price antiwar fanatics: “They’re afraid we’ll win.” It recalled something Dinesh D’Souza wrote a few weeks ago about the Left. Their belief system is based on, 1. Economic Piracy, 2. Moral Degeneracy, and 3. Anti-Americanism. That last standard is what undergirds the protesters, not concern over civilian casualties, or ecological damage, or regional instability, or any of their other pretenses. Would they have the grace to admit it.p>I wish Mr. Henry a quick recovery to full health. br> — Paul DeSisto br> Cedar Grove, NJ /p> p> Thanks to Lawrence Henry. Has any writer better summed up a simple situation quite so, well, simply? As Mr. Henry points out, it’s just not complicated. We just need to do it and quit worrying about a fringe left wing that cares nothing about war and little about security but everything about denying a President success. br> — Bob Hinkley

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
