Obama snubs the greatest generation. Governors gone wild. The Worst President. Plus more.
A LITTLE PROPRIETY
Re: Herbert London’s Obama on D-Day:
There is only one word to add to Herbert London’s article:
— Garry Greenwood
Another question for Mr. Obama:
What was so important, so germane to your task while in Europe, that you could not find time to visit Normandy? I could very well be wrong, but didn’t the French offer to divert your trip long enough so you could see for yourself the price my father’s generation paid?
If, Mr. President, you were sending a signal to those Europeans whom we liberated, and who fought by our sides that a bust of Sir Winston Churchill was no longer good enough to stand in the White House, then your lack of respect for those brave soldiers is terribly obvious.
Unfortunately, your glib talk and senseless speechifying cannot
paper over your absolute lack of understanding for the sacrifices
made which allow you the ignorance you so genuinely own.
— Richard Roessler
In his excellent D-Day article, Mr. London wrote this: “Before President Obama stands supinely before the G-20 again and engages in a form of national self-flagellation, I would urge him to stand amid the crosses and stars in Normandy cemetery and recall the sacrifices made by those youngsters so that he could be president of the United States and breathe an unadorned version of freedom.”

RALLY ROUND JINDAL
Re: Theodore Roosevelt Malloch’s Principles vs. Populism:
“I’m all for knowledge… But make no mistake, knowledge is not power. Truth is power.” — Gov. Bobby Jindal.
President Obama’s sole absolute truth would appear to be the
Sanctity of the State; he is otherwise a radical relativist,
and millions of imbecilic Americans are right there with
him. For the rest of us, who would see to the restoration of
this nation’s founding principles, the good governor from
Louisiana would appear to offer our only hope. Jindal’s first
fight will be against the Rockefeller country club wing of
the GOP, whose flag will most likely be borne by Mitt Romney,
Mr. Compromise himself; my vote will be for the guy with

A HISTORY OF UNETHICAL BEHAVIOR
Re: Mark Tooley’s Evangelical Left Ethicist Defends Obama on Abortion:
Mark Tooley should be commended for bringing to the attention of TAS readers the unethical and disingenuousness nature of Glenn Stassen and the religious left. The only thing that makes them “evangelicals” is their blind devotion to spreading the despair that is the Democrat Party and its policy. Like the Roman Catholic priests of Nazi Germany who supported Hitler’s “not worthy of life” policy, the religious left will say anything to support their political masters. Stassen and his ilk in the religious left are nothing more than political apparatchiks.
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?
