The latest news from the NYT regarding NSA and other secret programs which occurred with the vote on the Patriot Act and the novel about, surprise more information about this, did not have the intended result for the liberals. The president’s poll numbers went up and the public is not really as upset as the liberals expected I am sure.
This shows, and has many times, the lack of understanding the liberals have about the people of America. They are intelligent people who understand the need for information on any enemy that wants to hurt America and they are well aware how important the war in Iraq is and do not want to have the troops leave until the Iraqi people can feel safe with their own very well American trained troops.
I honestly wonder about the leadership of the liberals, if any real leadership is taking place, as they seem to be floundering around still, they were so sure this would be the big one, the one they could impeach the president with, the one where they destroy him as they have so furiously tried for the last five years. All their efforts to diminish the president do not seem to have worked particularly well for them. As Mr. Homnick writes, “the I word should not be used by the conservatives” because liberals are trying to make the word common and when they impeach him, the population will accept it. I guess this is an idea from the word change seminar they did on using the correct and new word as in being called “progressive.”
They have put so much effort into “getting Bush” they have neglected to be a party with any ideas for the future as a political party. As you say the people like Pelosi, Reid and Dean are, in my opinion, people who cannot keep their mouths shut for too long a time, as in wait for the speech to be over before you start in with the hysterical ranting!!p>Again, they have misunderestimated the president, the intelligence, caring, and courage of the American people. br> — Carole Graham /p>
Who was it that coined the phrase, (“One picture is worth a thousand words”)? Well, the picture of Howard, Harry and Nancy combined must be worth at least an encyclopedia. And I have to admit, I got a good belly laugh when I opened up the Spectator website. My very first thought and mental image was, of something right out of an Alfred Hitchcock movie (Psycho to be exact).
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?
