A defense from Reagan, an angry Stephanopoulos: the risks of prosecuting Bush and Cheney.

George Stephanopoulos had some advice the Obama team might consider worthwhile. When asked, in that Vanity Fair article, what he would say to future staffs of future administrations, he replied: “I would advise anyone [who joins the White House staff] to make sure you have a lawyer on retainer from the day you walk in.”
So if in fact this is where the Obama administration is going to let itself be pushed by the zealots at MoveOn or MSNBC or anywhere else, then perhaps they should start taking up furious George on his hard-earned wisdom. The Obama administration will be on a certain course to the day when a young Obama staffer will be standing in the Oval Office with his president only to hear Barack Obama say, as Ronald Reagan did to me: “I want you to know I’ve done nothing wrong.”
If not only George W. Bush and Dick Cheney but their Cabinet, their staff, and — perhaps most insultingly — the members of the CIA who have taken extraordinary risks to keep this country safe since 9/11 are now going to be dragged through show trials worthy of a banana republic, then, three words:

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?
