I have read Mr. Bohning’s Herald articles for many years and have always felt he wrote rich in facts though i often dissented from the conclusions he reached. I just finished your review of his book which I also will read. Your review made me pause and wonder. Is this the time the Democrat party became anti-American and so timid as to accomplish quite literally nothing in forty years?
Could it be that the Father and Son (figuratively), to whom the present day cowards and liars who comprise the leadership of this once great party look for inspiration were the catalyst that shut down both critical thought and any action whatsoever? Could these two men have become God to their party and killed it in one stroke?
If we accept the author’s premise, a basic law of physics, every action has an equal and opposite reaction, what the Kennedy’s did actually helped the dictator consolidate and keep power. My Dad who was a WWII Marine always told me “timidity is often worse than doing nothing.” It appears that the Kennedy’s caught the Harry Truman disease and acted without much conviction or force. To that my Dad would have said “If you’re going to put your boot on a man’s neck, you’d better break it because if you don’t he’s going to come looking for you one day.” Look at us now with North Korea.p>But I digress. My guess is that the Democrats are the perfect opposition party. They stand for nothing. They attempt nothing. They accomplish nothing. They merely disagree, though in a virulent, hate-filled manner. br> — Jay W. Molyneaux /p>
Am I crazy to wonder about the reaction of Democrats to the attempted ouster of Castro in light of the current furor over the successful dispossession of Saddam?
At the time, did Republicans rail against this attempt on Castro? How about the attitude of the MSM? I don’t clearly recall since I was busy raising my family at the time.p>We have a saying in our house concerning the ways of the world: “There’s one rule for Democrats; there’s another for Republicans.” The book review of The Castro Obsession makes me wonder if Kennedy was denounced by his opponents as Bush now is. br> —
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
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?
