splendor, his grooming. Way too radiant! Signals an internal need

Sure, Jack Kemp understood much. One detraction was his failure
to comprehend the long-term toll of ever-expanding federal debt,
which is something that has concerned fiscal conservatives since
the debt began to accumulate in the 1960’s, ballooning under the
shameless spending of my beloved but stupid Republican Party,
including Bush 43. Mr. Kemp thought that the annual federal
deficit did not matter as long as it remained a small percentage
of the GDP. He should think again. We are just beginning to reap
what we have sown.

“What conservatives need right now is another Jack Kemp for a younger generation”?
Please, don’t write off those of us who actually remember and lived when there was prayer in so-called public schools and no Roe v. Wade, and when there was such thing as mostly civil discourse in America — and were very much alive before socialist/Marxist/I’m-your-daddy Barack Hussein Obama or Barry Soetoro or whatever his real name and nationality is, was born.
As for another Jack Kemp? Conservatives of all living generations
in the U.S. could use another Jack Kemp or two or 20 or 1,000 or

Re: James Poulos’s Black and White and Red All Over:
I suppose it’s not enough for some people that a man who happens
to be black gets elected president — or even if a man who
happens to be black gets to be attorney general. Well, “we have
overcome,” and Eric Holder needs to be reminded that “nobody
likes a sore winner.”

Should anyone be surprised at this coming from the first black attorney general appointed by this particular first black president?
Perhaps, though, self-appointed Moralist-in-Chief and apparent Associate Lecturer-in-Chief Holder will address a real racist issue: abortion within the black community. Abortionists in the U.S. disproportionately kill black babies at a much higher rate than babies of other skin colors.
Perhaps Holder will address the spiritual, moral and social perversion of that Roe v. Wade-facilitated issue?
Or the equally perverse issue of bi-racial-though-fully-identified-with-blacks Obama supporting abortion and, by default or design, the apparent accelerated destruction of the very community which supported him and idolizes him?
Or examine why the black community and some of its voices such as Jackson, Sharpton, Bond and others sit on their backsides silent as the infanticide against their community continues?

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?
