And when did he know it? Working labor over. Tyranny, conservative-style. Plus more.

Re: Philip Klein’s Chicago Tugs on Obama’s Sleeve:
Huh? You “wonder” if The Messiah “picked up a few tricks” from his years in the Chicago Dem machine? I’m befuddled that there remains a question in your mind.
After having given ACORN and its surrogates over $800,000, do you think The One was ignorant of the fact they have been indicted for voter fraud in 12 states? Or that they registered the dead to vote early and often (ala Chicago) for His Lordship in this election?
How about launching a telephone and e-mail attack in a Chicago radio station that dared to have an anti-Obamessiah author on for an interview about his book?
How about accepting multiple millions in campaign donations from foreign sources, especially from the Middle East, in direct violation of federal campaign finance laws?
Perhaps these and several hundred other instances I could mention
but won’t for the sake of time will serve to remove the doubts in
your mind as to this worm’s absolute and total corruption.

Obama couldn’t be damned by the preacher. Nor could he blown off track by a terrorist. But he may be unseated by a jackass.

Truth is, we may well look back fondly on Blagojevich and his ilk. And soon.
Give me a good old fashioned crooked political hack any day. All he wants is a few minutes alone with the cash box, after all. And if he is for sale, at least he stays bought. The rest of the time he’s liable to be good company, or at least fun to watch. And may well have an old fashioned sense of patriotism and (some) traditional values to boot.
In my book, an engaging rogue is vastly preferable to the guy who
think he’s kid brother to the Holy Ghost, but can’t keep a friend
or a promise; the kind who’s solemnly, pompously planning to lead
us all over every cliff in sight.

The thought that Obama didn’t know about the dealings of “the
Gov” is scary. The thought that he knew and enabled him is even
scarier for America. Looks like we are starting to see who we
really elected and that the mainstream press did their best to
enable Obama to succeed without being vetted.

It looks like yet another of Obama’s pigeons is coming home
to…do what pigeons are (in)famous for doing!

UNIONS: CAN’T LIVE WITH’EM
Re: Lisa Fabrizio’s State of the Unions:
Labor unions should be limited to where they can organize, I think manufacturing is a good place for them although the raises that were made over the last 20 years have been inflationary. The insurance has been a good benefit but now that we are faced with a failure of these giants the retirees may suffer as a consequence.
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?
