Comparisons between Neville Chamberlain and the current crop of Democrats should be avoided for one reason, which is that they do an injustice to Mr. Chamberlain. After the German invasion of Poland, Chamberlain carried out a full-scale reconstruction of the government to place it on a wartime footing, appointed Winston Churchill to the War Cabinet as First Lord of the Admiralty, established the Special Operations Executive and, after his resignation, joined the government under Churchill. In this role, he provided critical support that prevented acceptance of Hitler’s terms, and even opposed the short term interests of his own party by working to create a Conservative power base that would support Churchill. Chamberlain served his nation loyally until his death a few months later.p>In contrast, the only Democrat who was willing to put the interests of the nation ahead of the ambitions of his party was Joe Lieberman, and you saw how his party responded. Far more common were those who chose to impede progress in the War on Terror, repeat the propaganda of our enemies and provide them with aid and comfort in the hopes that their victory will translate into a Democratic win in 2008. The proper analogy to Jimmy Carter, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama is not Neville Chamberlain, but Vidkun Quisling, who sought to undermine his nation’s defense in return for political power. br> — Mike Harris br> MAJ, U.S. Army /p> p> I’m struck by how often in the last few days conservative outrage over the outrage president bush elicited over his comments at the Knesset, and how often conservatives as of late seem to have historical amnesia. You mock the fact that President Carter was discussing “human rights, of all things.” Of course, because how could Hezbollah or Hamas have anything to do with such a thing, when the U.S. and Israel set such wonderful examples. The hypocrisy is extraordinary, and takes genuine ignorance not to notice. Further comment is not needed. I implore you to look at the facts, and quit your shameful propaganda. br> — Stephen Moser /p>
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?
