Carrousel riders. Tough on Teddy. The California Dems. Whose 9/11? Plus more.
PAYING BIG TIME
Re: R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr.’s Obama’s Carrousel of Incompetence:
This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever read. How about you
move out of the country if you cannot support your president.
It’s obvious you use child-like tactics to bring him down. I’m
sorry, but having to criticize his golf game clearly shows your
ignorance and desperate need to find anything to bring him

Yes it’s true. This bunch running the country is full of bumblers, some of them freaks that bring to mind “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” At the same time, however, they are attacking America’s ability to wage the war on terror. The recent attack on the CIA has been described as throwing a bone to Obama’s Lefty base. But it is more than that: it is one prong of an all out assault on our ability to fight a war. The attack on the CIA, lawyers interference in military issues, withdrawal from Iraq and probably soon Afghanistan, reduced military spending, balking at our security guarantees with allies, and negotiating with enemies getting nothing in return all point to a proposed isolation. The Islamic Fascists have been at war with the West for 1400 years and won’t stop now because Obama does not want to play.
On the domestic front, they are spending money at a rate that will bankrupt the country, destroying its credit and debasing the currency and printing new money which when monetized will produce a hyper-inflation, higher interest rates and turn us into a banana republic. Yet under our feet and in the sea lie trillions of dollars of oil gas and coal enough to supply not only our needs but export to the rest of the world for at least the next several decades. If we build 100 nuclear plants, the resources could last centuries. All this can be done while maintaining clean air and water standards and land conservation. It would have the additional effect of lowering energy prices, oil in particular, which would reduce the amount of money available for Islamists to conduct terrorism.
But this band of clowns want to subsidize alternative energy sources that can’t make it to market on their own dime and deprive us of energy sources that need not be subsidized and that are cheaper. They say they are protecting us from climate change. Humbug! They have found a new tax and new industry for insiders using government money.
As clowns, misfits, bumblers and fools they cut a wide swath.
Unfortunately in the process they are ruining the country.

In a perfect world the president would have some military experience, some executive experience, some business experience and some foreign policy experience.
Obama had no experience in any of those areas. None.
Any people on the left have the unmitigated gall to say GOVERNOR Palin was unqualified. Exactly what were Obama’s qualifications?
Like the saying goes, you reap what you sow. We hired a smooth
talker who had no experience. Now we are paying big
It was only this past Winter and Spring
That no one but Rush dared say a thing,
But now the folks are carrying signs.
They know that our president has designs
On their security, their cars, their health and their
Their very existence, and they don’t think it’s funny.
Hope and change are so very yesterday.
A new kind of communism is on the way.
The transformation is coming apace.
But he shuns your objection and blames it on race.
None dare raise their voices and speak.
Yet the American people have never been weak.
The Reign of Terror will not be long.
Love of freedom makes us exceedingly strong.
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?
