Doesn’t it bring you pain, Mr. Wittman, to have to be the bearer of sad tidings? It would pain me!
Excellent analysis, to which I have three comments:
Your concluding sentence, “Is that clear enough, Mr. President?” is priceless. A rhetorical question, you cheeky devil.
I challenge you for proof of this: “One thing is obvious: Barack Obama must have never understood much about the American history he read at Columbia and Harvard.” My challenge is not whether he learned anything from, but whether he even attended, any courses in American history.
And finally: If I were in a fight for my life, I’d want my opponent to wear the kid gloves while I wore the brass knuckles.
Now imagine what I’d want to wear in a fight for my country’s life.
Someone like Netanyahu could do it bareknuckled and still win, and we’re being defended by the equivalent of the Marquis of Queensbury’s maid.

Re: The Prowler’s From Senator to Lowly Secretary:
Why stop at the Secretary of State? Naming the grossly incompetent in Mr. Obama’s staff could replace character annihilation as the nation’s favorite prime time reality show. From Biden, Clinton, Holder, and the list is nearly endless, to the recent Supreme nominee, Obama is showing his naiveté and inexperience as a manager in picking people obviously inferior to his own lofty intellect to manage this once great country. Once I thought he was cagey like a fox and was really shelving anyone remotely dangerous to him, but then I woke up and looked at every young manager I’ve ever known and see every characteristic that would have been trained out of him years ago if he’d ever had a real job managing real people, and a real budget.
The truly incompetent manager looks everywhere for a victim to
blame for their inadequate performance.

FOR THE THRILL OF IT
Re: Jeremy Lott’s “We Are Out of Money”:
The Prez has already admitted, “We are out of money,” without the
Left easing off on their spending spree. When they pursue their
dream of a single payer system without any basis in funding, we
can’t be too surprised. After all, it’s not the money but the
power that’s such a rush, baby.

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?
