Churchill wanted America to fight. The real favored nation. Obama’s false questions. Plus more.

Re: Patrick O’Hannigan’s Obama, Noonan, and Blarney:
I lost respect for Peggy Noonan during her Palin-bashing in the last election. My sense is that time has passed Ms. Noonan by. She’s comfortable in the detached world of high concepts and ideals and has lost touch with the grit of real life. In that sense she is a perfect match for Obama, which may explain the attraction. Aloof elitists both.
Obama’s actions will have devastating affects on people. Noonan’s
journalistic ramblings on Obama’s persona shows she is equally
detached from the impact of what he is doing.

A HISTORY LESSON
Re: Jason Emerson’s Lincoln’s Decisive Switch:
I submit just a brief remark or two regarding the featured review of the “Lincoln’s Decisive Shift” by Jason Emerson.
I simply ask is this the same Lincoln that lectured black’s in the Oval Office that it was their duty to leave this country? Did he give them an option of being sent to Liberia or Haiti?
Was this the same Lincoln that was pushing for legislation in 1861 would have prevented Congress from making slavery illegal?
Was this the same Lincoln that stated to blacks that it was impossible for whites and blacks to commingle?
Did Lincoln tell the negroes in 1862 which he had he
summoned…”you and we are different races”. We have between us a
broader difference than exists between almost any other two
races”. Right or wrong,” the difference meant that the negro was
unassimilable in American
society. Freedom will not solve the problem.” “If the negroes wanted to avoid a future of menial subjection, they should think of colonizing, under United States protection in Haiti or in Central American. It is better for both of us”. Good old Abe clearly did not consider negroes equal in potential but instead inferior as a race.
Where in hell does the American Spectator dig up these book writers that write pure myth. I realize that your top editor has a thrill up his leg for Churchill not unlike Chris Mathews has for the man child. Your editor has bought all the Churchill self promotion crap that Churchill put to ink… including lies — true history be damned.
Surely he is ignorant as to true history and how Churchill lied twice regarding Sir Hugh Dowding. Churchill’s words did not win one battle. Dowding and his few only saved the western civilization. George Will wrote that “we remember Jefferson but live Hamilton. We remember ego driven Churchill but few know Dowding was the the true hero that lead the few brave fighter pilots. Churchill… please take another bow.
This is the second book feature by the Lincoln Cult which has
little with fact. Sad. Fortunately my subscription spanning some
ten years soon closes out. You magazine is following the
Republican party. You do not demand the truth and have less and
less influence. Apparently all your staff is the product of

THE LIBERAL CAREER TRACK
Where are now all those demonstrators shouting “Ho-Ho-Ho Chi Min”? Where are now those killers of Weather Underground and the Black Panthers? Where are now the former members of the Communist Party USA?
Well, in several places, as follows:
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?
