With all due respect:
I thought The American Spectator was an oasis of media for conservatives, but it has recently become quite liberal. Yesterday an article on “Conservatives for Clinton,” now this? Everything you site in this article is nothing but fake scandals created by the Democrats and their Left-wing partners in the Media.
You site Katrina. Ok, that was a NATURAL disaster. Bush actually was preemptive on that storm. It was Governor Blanco that balked and Mayor Nagin (both Democrats) that didn’t carry out the evacuation plan. Moreover, it was corrupt local Democrats that spent the levy money elsewhere for years. Also, if the majority of the black population was not on some liberal government entitlement program then they would have the means to get out AND wouldn’t be waiting, in danger, for their welfare check (remember the storm hit right before the 1st of the month, payday).
Walter Reed is yet another example of the failures of bureaucracies. Should Bush have done more to fix these bloated agencies? Yes, but he tried to start with Social Security and the Left screamed bloody murder! Does the next President have to communicate the need for such change? Yes, and Fred Thompson (if he runs) is the only one that has attempted to do so, when he was in the Senate.
U.S. Attorney “scandal” is nothing more than Democrats criminalizing politics. Clinton fired all 93 U.S. Attorneys when he took office. How can you not know that?
John McCain is a liberal that calls himself a Republican. He will never win the Republican nomination for that reason. Let me explain something to you, since, even though you write for a conservative website/newsletter, you don’t know. The Republican “base” is made up of conservatives. Besides our principles, we are educated on what made this country great. And that is the Constitution, interpreted through its original intent. John McCain has done more to trample the First amendment then Political Correctness has. Moreover, he’s a lapdog for the Liberal Media, which is nothing but a bunch of left-wing, big government types. “Uniter”? Are you kidding me? That attitude is what got Bush in so much trouble, as all these Clinton holdovers have done everything to undermine his Presidency.
I can go on forever, but I’ll sum it up for you. Bush’s poll numbers are low because Democrats hate him (no big surprise) and because he has not been a true conservative. He’s good on some things (tax cuts, national security) but awful on others (spending, immigration). However, at least he’s not a child like Bill Clinton.p>The next President needs to roll back and fix all the problems that we face as a result of the last century of liberalism. Reagan started it, someone needs to finish it. 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?
