Why is it, that columnists comparing the 1992 presidential election with the upcoming 2004 election, all fail to mention that Ross Perot’s running as an independent contributed mightily to the reelection of George Bush I?
The 19% vote for Perot was mostly conservative and independent voters leaning right, who would have voted for Bush had Perot not made a run.p>With the Democrats’ current stand on national security, I don’t see anyone beating Bush II, regardless of the state of the economy. This country simply can’t afford another Democrat until the war on terror has been won, and a majority of the American voters will likely express this sentiment at the ballot box. br> — Ralph Goodson br> Vero Beach, FL /p>
Unmentioned in Hogberg’s article were several points:
• Ross Perot will not be around to split the conservative vote;
• President Bush has not made a “Read my lips” gaffe and is working hard for a tax cut;
• President Bush has not alienated the NRA with a push for more gun control laws, although this will be an issue when the “Assault Rifle Ban” sunsets.
Conservatives who were disappointed with Bush Sr. had Perot as an alternative; unfortunately, a great many people decided to teach Bush Sr. a lesson and we wound up with Clinton. Who learned the lesson?p>Please encourage your readers to help Al Sharpton’s campaign. br> — Lamar Johnson

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
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?
