Obama exposed. Meetings and tables. Seizing power. Trusting the local paper. Plus more.

I believe a winning theme for Conservatives and Republicans in
coming elections is that representatives will take the same
medicine they give us. That would include health care, social
security, and the same financial disclosure and ethics
regulations the rest of us abide by.

Thanks, Ben. Put some more eyedrops in. Once again, you, Peggy
Noonan, George Will, and the rest of the “Conservatives” that are
part of the Washington Inner Circle are a year late and
a trillion dollars short.

OUT OF MANY, THE ONE
Re: The Prowler’s Profiling Obama:
“One of the recommendations, according to sources: American officials shouldn’t identify themselves as representatives of the United States. Rather…they should identify themselves as a ‘representative of President Barack Obama.’” Sure, why not? It worked well for Louis XIV, King George III, and more recently for Stalin, Hitler, Peron and Chavez.
America is not one person. Remember it is E Pluribus Unum and
never the reverse.

“‘The President chose action, in part because we saw this story eclipsing other issues and narratives that we needed front and center for August,’ says the White House source.”
Translation: Barack Obama would’ve done and would do nothing but for at least a couple of actualities. One, the nightmare of Obamacare and the specter of Waxman-Markey, coupled with the failure of Porkulus I, are causing Obama’s popularity to nose-dive. Two, essentially, there is mass public rejection of Obama’s ideology and what appears to be a revolt within the Democrat Party over the no-longer-can-be-hidden socialist anti-American agenda of the president and Democrat Party leadership.
One wonders: Absent an apology from Obama, why is the police officer actually going to meet with two men who appear to be racial discord incarnate waiting to express itself—and two men who appear to have no grasp what a true “teachable” moment is?
One also wonders: Have Obama and Gates, both whom seem to carry
huge racial chips on their shoulders, ever heard that old saw:
Give a man a hammer and everything looks like a nail?

TAXPAYER FUNDED DANCING AND BONDING
Re: Ben Stein’s No Meetings on the Table:
Ben has an uncanny ability to put most things into perspective,
perhaps unusually for an economist but maybe not for a trained
and experienced lawyer. As a former director of a federally
funded state agency, I participated in a number of remotely
located training sessions both in Michigan and in other states.
These were usually successful training tools and always good for
employee morale. Unfortunately, some had elements of the
“dancing” exercises that were I guess designed to help managers
bond. I cringed when these occurred and finally told our HR
people to nix them in future meetings. At the end of the day, the
sessions were worthwhile but I had hoped the trendy embarrassing
elements were no longer used by the HR professionals, obviously I

EXEMPTING THE WALK
Re: David Catron’s How Much Is a Year of Your Life Worth?:
There are continued references to Kennedy and his continued health care under the new bill. One must remember that, above all things, Kennedy is a messiah vote in the Senate, even if an ambulance is required to bus him in to cast that vote! His health care is guaranteed, along with anyone else who votes yes for the bill nobody reads.
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?
