If we think back, the gaffes did not start with Pastor Wright. I recall Obama in some hard scrabble town, speaking to a crowd who looked like they were waiting for the Bingo game to start. Obama was lamenting the sky-rocketing cost of groceries. He said “I mean, has anyone checked the price of arugula lately?” He was speaking to a bewildered “Kraft Dressing on iceberg lettuce” crowd.p>Nice that Obama does not have to buy his arugula with food stamps as his struggling mother did. I am still trying to figure out how she got food stamps in Indonesia. Unless that humiliation came later, with his grandparents in Hawaii. Golly, two generations of no-hopers. br> — Diane Smith /p> p> It did appear that the NAACP audience Wright was addressing Sunday was the kind of older yuppie self-satisfied, well-educated, wealthy, and “non-bitter” elite that Obama was addressing in San Francisco. They did not respond the way a “typical black” congregation would. There was little applause, little emotional response, little or no shouting, and virtually no participation when he tried to elicit it. br> — Richard L.A.

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?
