We have all heard of some RINO Republicans. Now we Republicans have become something even worse: Nero Republicans. Two-thirds of our U.S. House Members were and are mindlessly willing to fiddle while Rome burns. All the while, Conservative writers such as Jeremy Lott, Philip Klein, Robert Stacy McCain, John Berlau, et al., along with thousands of mindless Republican phone-callers and emailers, thoughtlessly and self-righteously cajoled House Republicans to cast one of the blindest House votes ever.p>Granted that Secretary Paulson was arrogant in his grudging presentation to House Republicans; granted that Speaker Pelosi gave an inane and insulting House speech. But Republican focus from the beginning was never where it should have been: Paulson was only asking for the same authority given to the Resolution Trust Corporation in 1989 which ultimately cost the taxpayers scarcely a penny. All of the Republican smokescreen about free-market mechanisms and principles was mindless grandstanding, for it was wholly beside the point. American and world markets needed reassurance. Main Street absolutely needs Wall Street if we are to preserve and enhance our massive retirement systems. Bashing Wall Street by voting blindly NO was totally irresponsible. Even if Republican writers, phone-callers and emailers refuse to be grownups, please, can’t House Republicans stop playing Nero and read a little 1989 history? br> — Darrel Hansen br> Alamo, Nevada /p> p> TOLD YOU SO br> Re: The Prowler’s

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?
