I finished reading your short piece by the same name in the subject line.
The writer blames Bill Clinton for the Saudi extremist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. That’s odd, he wasn’t the sitting president at the time. I believe George W. Bush was.
The truth is, Americans are fatigued by Republican terror tactics. Democrats are ahead in the polls because they want to end this foolish war/occupation in Iraq, they know that Americans want to improve the quality of life at home, and they know that strong international alliances are better bets at gaining intelligence and fighting terror groups than “go it alone” cowboy belligerence and bravado that is the way of this current conservative Republican president.
Americans want a new way, and the GOP’s promotion of terror from Islam is as limp as Bush’s approval ratings.p>Any one of the 8 Blind Mice mentioned in the opinion piece of your publication is preferable to the foolish, neutered rooster in the White House. br> — Roger Dier br> Oshkosh, Wisconsin /p>
This essay has made it clear, if it needed to be made any clearer, that Democrats or should I say liberals refuse to see the dangers in front of their eyes. With unconscionable unconcern they blithely move forward with ideas of immigration reform, educational reform, and health care reform that will bankrupt the country, endanger the country, and sign its death warrant.
My question is now and has always been: How can these educated, intelligent, informed people actually believe what they seem to believe? For many years I have sought an answer to this question, however, that answer has eluded me. Now, in light of the asinine way that these, the supposed best and brightest of the Democratic Party have answered the proffered question, I must conclude that for them, people, the country, even civilization are meaningless when placed next to power.
No one who has watched the massive failures of Socialism and Communism in the past 50 years could possibly believe that these systems can ever work, yet they are willing, in fact, eager to put them into play here. No one who has watched the amping up of hatred for the U.S. and all it stands for coming from the Muslim world, complete with its threats of our destruction could possibly believe that the danger from these fanatics is real and palpable. In the shadow of what were the twin towers, and with the several threatened terrorist plots uncovered recently, denial of the danger is almost criminal.
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?
