It is clear Bob Barr has finally expunged the “demons” of Reaganism from his “soul” (Bush is merely following the policy of Ronald Reagan of refusing to openly dialogue with the pro-terrorist theocracy in Iran). This is the hope for disaffected conservatives? Give me a break! This man is more Lord Halifax and Joe Kennedy than Winston Churchill or Ronald Reagan. Appeasement is appeasement no matter how you dress it up, Bob.p>Why should conservatives dissatisfied with McCain throw away their votes on BARRack lite when they can vote for the real deal? BARRack Obama should consider “new/old” Bob Barr for his running mate. Then his claim to bipartisanship would no longer be a lie — sort of. br> — Michael Tomlinson br> Jacksonville, North Carolina /p>
What is this fixation at TAS with Bob Barr and the Libertarian Party? I understand that the Libertarians have a right to expect some coverage, and I don’t have a problem with it being given here. What I don’t get is the seeming fixation here with Bob Barr and the Party.
It seems that every day we have a new article here telling us about the battle for the nomination, or the challenges Barr faces in winning over the Party, or how the Party is poised to do some damage in the general election. But really, is all of this attention necessary for a party that is not really a player in the process? Honestly, how many people are going to cast votes in this election for a candidate from a basically fringe party?p>This is not to dismiss or diminish the views of the Libertarians, because on many issues I find myself in agreement with them. But can we please have more in depth analysis of the two candidates that have an honest chance winning and not another group of stories about the Libertarians. Because when it all shakes out, they aren’t going to be a huge factor in the race…so why continue to cover them as if they are? br> — Eric Edwards br> Walnut Cove, North Carolina
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?
