Obama: Jeremiah Wright, of the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, was Obama’s pastor for twenty years until a falling out this year as Wright’s controversial preachings received publicity. Among the more incendiary sermons was an admonition to “Goddamn America” and a description of America as “white America…the U.S. of KKKA” Wright faced accusations of racism and left-wing radicalism, the intensity of which, combined with Wright’s unapologetic reaction, caused Obama to angrily leave his church. Wright had married the Obamas and baptized their children.
* Ideal Political Woman:
Republicans: Republican Vice Presidential nominee, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Mother of 5, including a Down syndrome baby. She is pro-life and a member of the National Rifle Association, a hunter with a lifetime of experience handling guns. As a high school student she was the head of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. She has also been a beauty pageant contestant, a basketball and hockey player, a television sports commentator and she loves to fish. Her husband is a commercial fisherman who has never served as Governor or Senator from Alaska. He has never been impeached as president of the United States.
Democrats: U.S. Senator from New York Hillary Clinton. Mother of one. She is pro-abortion and has no idea how to handle a gun beyond limiting the Constitutional right to own one. As a college student she became radicalized, becoming a follower of left-wing activist Saul Alinsky, about whom she wrote her senior thesis. She graduated from Yale Law School, where she had worked with legal services. A lifelong activist for liberal causes, she began her Washington career working on the impeachment of President Nixon. She married fellow law student Bill Clinton and won election to her Senate seat while still serving as the president’s wife. She insisted the impeachment of her husband was as a result of a “vast right wing conspiracy.”
The McCains: eight houses, several owned for investment purposes by Cindy McCain, her dependent children, and the trusts and companies they control. The original funds come from the earnings of her father Jim Hensley’s beer distributorship.
The Obamas: one house and adjoining land in Chicago purchased with the assistance of Antoin “Tony” Rezko, a convicted felon
* Job creation:
Mitt Romney: Served as co-founder of a Wall Street investment firm. Invested in a lone office supply store calling itself “Staples.” Helped the store grow to almost 1,800 stores in the U.S. that provides 35,000 jobs, with more jobs in stores located in 21 countries.
Barack Obama: Turned down chances to work on Wall Street in favor of being a “community organizer” in Chicago. Spent his time teaching the unemployed to beg from large government bureaucracies, creating no jobs for anyone.
* Description of the Democrats and Republicans at their Conventions:
The Democrats, by Dana Milbank, reporter for the Washington Post.
“It was the start of a veritable carnival of new-age healing harmony…” Denver, writes Milbank, has become “a parade ground for the full panoply of liberal interest-group politics. Planned Parenthood hosted a dance party called ‘Sex, Politics and Cocktails.’ Code Pink put on a ‘Make Out Not War’ concert. Near the entrance to the convention grounds, representatives of Trojan condoms handed out samples and invited delegates to see how long it would take them to put a prophylactic on a banana.”
Democrats turned their “convention into a display of politically correct exercises in planet saving,” Milbank faithfully reports. “Democrats urged vendors to make sure 70 percent of the food served at convention events was organic or local and included ‘at least three of the following five colors: red, green, yellow, blue/purple, and white (Garnishes not included).’”p>The Republicans, by: Scott Gillespie, reporter for the

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?
