Kudos to Mr. Tyrrell not only for his prescience, but vision in founding The American Spectator.
As for the Democrat candidates “leadership prowess” and foreign policy “experience” if condoning genocide, accepting millions of dollars in campaign contributions from dubious and unnamed foreign sources, advocating surrender in Iraq and the War on Terror, wanting to play nice with totalitarian dictators, allowing U.S. policy to be dictated by European whims and stiff arming America’s neighbors and leading trading partners ranks as “foreign policy experience” then Obama and Clinton have it in abundance. Their carbon copy domestic agendas are just as unimpressive — massive tax increases on working Americans, destroying health care, increasing pork spending, allowing decrepit and corrupt labor unions to set economic policy and an idolatrous “cult of personality” masquerading as wisdom and leadership. Whether it’s Hillary “Obama” or Barack “Clinton” they both promise an “Obamanation” for the U.S.p>To his final question, “What kind of conservative would reject him (McCain) and allow either of the Democratic contenders to preside over our foreign or domestic policies?” — the same conservatives who blithely chortled “we can afford to throw away an election or two” in 2006 and regularly pimp Reagan’s name to undercut President Bush and Republicans to the benefit of Democrats. br> — Michael Tomlinson /p>
“What kind of conservative would reject him and allow either of the Democratic contenders to preside over our foreign or domestic policies?”
Possibly the kind who can’t forget McCain-Feingold or McCain-Kennedy or Comprehensive Shamnesty or the gang of 14 or the Keating 5 or the latest travesty, McCain-Lieberman, as our fearless candidate endeavors to lead us back to a greener more primitive 17th century.p>Or maybe the kind who feels that the damage a Hillary or Obama can do isn’t all that much worse than the damage an open borders McCain can do. And a Democrat can’t terminally damage the conservative cause.
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?
