James Antle’s description of Bob Michel and the events he didn’t preside over (and probably wouldn’t have varied much from what occurred if he had) gave me a headache . Nostalgia for the bad old days is not a pleasant experience. But at least things got better; we don’t have that assurance today. Bob Michel MAY have been a nice guy. I remember him smiling a lot, so did the languid, indolent, and intergallactically incompetent Denny Hastert. The fact of life, constant, immutable, and in full operation today in so many ways, is that good comes from good organization which in turn stems from good leadership. In the case of the Demo-controlled Congress, well, the evidence speaks for itself. In the case of the Republicans, well, res ipsa….p>American leadership, certainly at the federal level is at its lowest tide in my 62-year memory. I’ve said it repeatedly, I’ll say it again: Warriors come to fight. There are few, if any conservative warriors. And they seem to have taken an extended breather. It seems to me that a conservative’s hope must lie with the 20-30’s of today. The military-experienced youth, the conservative college youth, the conservative blue collar youth. All of whom can smell swamp gas and have had a stomach full of the large doses of bovine fecal matter tossed at them by the libs and political weaklings of both parties. Hope I’m alive to see it. br> — J.C. Eaton br> Chetek, Wisconsin /p> p> The Republicans are seen as gutless, generally. The Democrats as are coming to be seen a treacherous, but the Republicans are so gutless that Americans consider choosing the treacherous. The President, resolute with foreign enemies, is blind to the domestic; has been from the very beginning. br> — Reid Bogie br> Waterbury, Connecticut
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?
