While I appreciate our friend R. Emmett Tyrrell’s testimony on John McCain’s character and management skills, I am more disgusted that he will use those traits on bad policy.
Can he manage the global warming hoax with cap and trade instead of untying the hands of the oil companies (obscene profits and all) without destroying the economy? Will his character force him to fight for originalist judges he appoints or will he cave and say, “I can’t win with a 57-58 seat Democratic Senate”? Will his skills successfully fight the terrorists when he agrees with the left on closing Gitmo that the Supreme Court now totally screwed up? Will he become such a good fiscal manager that he, with a heavy Democratic Congress, decides taxes should be raised “on the wealthiest” (like his wife?) to help the still increasing federal budget?p>From watching McCain’s campaign so far, I have to worry a President McCain will, according to Tyrrell’s assessment, be the better man to advance the causes of the left he subscribes to than Mr. Obama. br> — Greg Barnard br> Franklin, Tennessee /p> p> Why are we not looking around for another person? McCain can’t win, the same as Goldwater couldn’t. This Party is doomed if we keep moving in the direction we’ve followed the past 12 years. Check the polls and see how many are sitting out the election. I know I am. br> — Richard Ledford /p> p> Cheerleading for Gramps! You and your philosophy have been a disaster. It’s over baby. Over. br> — Scott Simon /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?
