Because the government has spent everything else. Too-proud politicos. Pin it on the Dems. Plus more.

Re: Jeremy Lott’s “We Are Out of Money”:
Jeremy Lott wrote that “President Barack Obama handed his political opponents a bludgeon the size of Thor’s hammer Saturday.”
And where is the conservative or Republican “Thor” who can wield it effectively?
Lift it, even?
None in sight, Mr. Lott. None in sight.

Sometimes it is the simplest words that bring the clearest definition to the problems at hand. With President Obama declaring in national press that we are out of money, the cat has been let out of the bag, or as my old Daddy would say in more graphic rancher lingo, “The cow just got out of the chute gals, get the heck out of her way!” What we all knew for so long is now fully visible to all who are looking around the world. The once great nation has now declared they are broke and their money is worth nothing. His disclosure is akin to the emperor with no clothes who was exposed for who he really was by a simple child. Our own Emperor has announced it himself.
Between that announcement and dear Vice President Cheney speaking clear discernable truth to Obama’s nonsense, the future is looking somewhat brighter. We have now confronted real truth and that is always needed before we can turn things around. For all his empty rhetoric and naïve world view, this standing president will hold the reins of a now run away horse and he, who had never ridden a horse at all, will not be able to stay in his saddle.
I believe firmly that Congress may enact away but from this point on not one-tenth will actually be put in place. For we have now found ourselves bankrupt and announced it. What nation will want to invest in our economy now? And as the economy turns as many Chrysler-owned dealerships are closed and tangential businesses along with them, we will soon see chaos breaking out all over. The people are already hot under the collar over governmental incompetence and nonsensical dealings with our real enemies, and enough will be enough.
All in all, it makes me thankful to be so far away from the Beltway in D.C. Here on the ranch we can view it all on stage. And as disgusted as I am, that is far enough.
I’m praying for our country this one day after we remember those
who died for all we have now.

Re: Darrell Issa’s An Airport for Somebody:
One is suspicious of anybody who allows something to be named after him while he’s still alive — Republican as well as Democrat. And the more often their name is bestowed, the more suspicious one gets.
Couldn’t they just repress their egos and wait, until they’re
long dead and one is going down the highway wondering
“whose name is that on that sign, who is this highway named
after? What did he do?”

Re: Jay D. Homnick’s Civil Lies:
America’s dalliance with Obama may leave Jay D. Homnick reeling,
disoriented and unmoored; in which case he had
better head back to port. Me, I’m mad enough to chew nails
and have just begun to fight.

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?
