I am sorry to say, but it seems that some of the American people don’t understand how serious this election is. And we can’t do a thing about it. But you can. Sen. Obama and his gang will destroy the nation and us all. He is such a novice.
It is a blessing to get Governor Palin on the McCain ticket. She is so good and it feels good to see her and listen to her.
So please send your article to her, because it very important she is herself. Keep swinging.p>Regards from Sweden, br> — Marianne Andersson /p>
Angelo M. Codevilla has it exactly right: Sarah Palin just needs to be Sarah Palin, not another calculated phony “processed” by handlers.
A real human being has appeared on the national stage, a woman whose innate honesty and lack of arrogance resonates far more than the manufactured credentials of retro-socialist Barack Obama, clubhouse hack Joe Biden, and pseudo-maverick John McCain. A woman who’s been a surrogate punching bag for the odious assortment of “experts” whose livelihoods depend on maintaining the myth that “Joe Six Pack” Americans are inconsequential nitwits. Yet despite every cheap shot, every lie, and every attempt to humiliate Mrs. Palin, they can’t put her down.p>She is the champion of every American who has borne the brunt of liberal, elitist scorn in powerless silence. br> — Arnold Ahlert br> Boca Raton, Florida /p>
Angelo Codevilla suggests that the official Republican brand is an amalgam of “weenie,” gutless, obsequious pansies who want to be respected and liked simultaneously but will gladly settle for the latter and “when God, please will it happen?” Unfortunately, he is correct. There are a few in each house of Congress who can truly boast of having a bit of political testosterone in their canteen, but not many; and they are pretty much marginalized by the “official” party. It seems that every election cycle, Conservatives complain [usually to small effect] that the “official” Republicans have perfidiously and pusillanimously abandoned the true religion, wasted time and credibility being nice and bi-partisan. I think the complaint has much merit. It has, as Mr. Codevilla writes, happened again, as evidenced by the bailout debacle and the miniaturization of Gov. Palin. It will continue to happen until….
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?
