Stay home, Jeb. Narconomics 101. Mimi outclasses Elizabeth Alexander. Three cheers for GWB. Plus more.
THE LINE ENDS HERE
Re: J.T. Young’s Only Qualified to Be President?
Haven’t we had enough Bush in the White House? (No jokes here…please)
Please note: I was/am a Bush (W) supporter on national defense, but not his onerous domestic agenda.
Assuming Jeb is planning a run in 2012, what…we can’t find a more bona fide conservative Republican for 2012?
How is it that we sat by while liberal Democrats and moderate Republicans defined who our candidate was for 2008? Is this starting already? Jeb in 2012?
We (Republican Party of the conservative bent) need more fixing than another middle of the road Bush.
One man’s opinion.
Are you nuts? Conservatives have been conned by two Bushes already, why risk another? Reagan’s worst mistake was putting Bush on his ticket. Remember voodoo economics? Both Bushes are big government guys who have spent most of their adult life at the government teat. W’s slogan ‘compassionate conservatism” itself is saying conservatism is not compassionate and admitting W is not a conservative. Conservatism is based upon fiscal responsibility. Why have we let the media define W as a conservative?
Why would anyone want to chance another country club republican
like Ford, Dole, McCain or both Bushes? Both parties have failed
us. The present financial disaster was started by Dems but Reps
held all branches of government in first four years of Bush and
failed to defeat Barney and his socialist grifters. Bush often
said he thought everyone should own a home: pure insanity. Sounds
just like Barney to me. We are at the point where only a
revolution can save the Union. Our federal government is the most
corrupt institution in the world, worse than the South American
and Central American countries we all used to make fun of. Our
federal government is Enron. Another Bush will just complete the
total debasement of US conservatism.
PRICES GET HIGH
Re: George H. Wittman’s Following the Afghan Drug Trail:
I have long advocated a policy of buying out the poppy farmers, paying them a high premium over the market price for their crop. In this way, we can drive the Taliban broke trying to compete, while at the same time giving Afghan farmers the opportunity to get into another line of business.
Following the example of the USDA, we would pay Afghan poppy farmers anything up to twice the market value of their crop NOT to grow poppies. They would not have to let the land lie fallow, but could grow other crops (saffron is turning out to be a popular cash crop that pays more than poppies). This would cost us a fraction of the cost of “eradication”, and we should be prepared to keep it up for a decade or more, until a new agricultural economy emerges in Afghanistan.
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?
