Re: William Tucker’s “Let This Guy Govern” Again:
William Tucker is out of line when he says “In case John Kerry won, I said, conservatives should stand by the election without carping about skullduggery or fraud. The Democrats had already introduced this poison into the system by spending four years disputing the results of 2000. My appeal was that Republicans not do the same.”
There is a difference here. The Democratic (ACORN, the media, etc) actually are cheating; the GOP didn’t cheat in 2000 (or 2004).
Tucker illogical advice is like a pro-abortionist chiding the opposition because they may favor capital punishment. And just as there’s a distinct moral difference between executing a guilty murderer and ripping an unborn baby apart at the whim of the mother, so is there a fundamental difference between the false charges of Gore that Bush cheated and the valid claim that Obama and the liberal establishment rigged the 2008 election from start to finish.
Mr. Tucker can lay down to an Obama Administration, but I won’t.
The man is illegitimate as far as I’m concerned.

Mr. Tucker must be wearing his rose-colored glasses. I will not dispute that the pendulum may eventually swing the other way. In the meantime, the destruction that ensues will not be pretty. I think the most delusional portion of Mr. Tucker’s piece his suggestion that “If Obama does get elected, then America is not a racist society.” I am quite satisfied that any criticism of Obama, his policies, or any mention of mistakes of even the most minor sort will be demonized as an outburst of residual racism. Mr. Obama is a divider, a separator. He will separate the races just as he will separate us from our wealth. Our balkanization will continue at an accelerated rate with this guy setting the tone.

I’ve said for years that going to church doesn’t make one a
Christian anymore than standing in a garage makes you a
car. The label “Christian” doesn’t mean much anymore, even
for many people who claim the title. But, I’m not the judge.
I’ll let Jesus’ words speak for themselves. In Matt 7:21-22
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’”

Five problems, William.
First with control of the House and anything like 57+ Democrat Senators it won’t be a question of letting them “govern” but “rule.” The three, four liberal Republican Senators will be all that stands to stop legislation and they have a proven track record of voting with Democrats most of the time. It would take a miracle to change that imbalance in 2 or even 4 years under the best of conditions. Nothing will stop judicial appointments by gentlemen’s agreement now. This nation is ruled by the Court system not by the other two branches of government as required in the defunct Constitution.
Second, regarding “Foreign wars are never popular,” when were WWI and WWII “popular? With whom? The issue is not popularity but commitment to win. You win wars one way and only one way. We tried to redefine winning three or maybe four times now and lost every time. We lost Korea, Vietnam and the First Gulf War (battle in effect) because we weren’t committed to winning in the only way that validates our sacrifices. Not finishing the job in the first Gulf War led directly to the second attempt with less than half the forces to do it with. The same thing can be said of WWI in effect as it’s after effects directly led to WWII.
Third, every criticism of the Messiah’s policies will be seen as a racist thing by his devoted followers. Some will act in the same ways as those peace loving followers of another popular religion when their Prophet is questioned. Nothing good will come of this either through intimidation of free speech rights or outright violence against those that oppose the “One.” You under estimate the emotional attachment to the symbol that half this population will in effect worship.
Fourth, the damage Marxism has brought on this Nation is cumulative. Neither Reagan nor Bush made any attempts to roll back the underlying damage. Both governed in a very pragmatic way and tried to grow us out of our socialism burden. That only works if you stop growing socialism. Tell me, what about our Public School system and an 80% Democratic Media do you think is going to change that and stop growing ignorant masses of future socialistic voters? A little bit Socialistic is like a little bit pregnant. Both are myths and the first is the product of a very Big Lie that there aren’t enough voters to overcome. Marxism has never voted itself out of existence.

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

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?
