Obama’s retreat. Missile defenseless. Carterism. Plus more.
(Page 3 of 3)
Just as true-believer Obama won’t be controlled or change,
neither will true-believer Carter.
The day after his initial condemnation and dismissal of those who object to Barack Obama’s and the tin-eared non-representative Congress’s politics and actions, Carter reprised his insult.
At Emory University, he said, “When a radical fringe element of demonstrators and others begin to attack the president of the United States as an animal or as a reincarnation of Adolf Hitler or when they wave signs in the air that said we should have buried Obama with Kennedy, those kinds of things are beyond the bounds.”
Further, “I think people who are guilty of that kind of personal attack against Obama have been influenced to a major degree by a belief that he should not be president because he happens to be African American. It’s a racist attitude, and my hope is and my expectation is that in the future both Democratic leaders and Republican leaders will take the initiative in condemning that kind of unprecedented attack on the president of the United States.”
Would that be like Carter, Obama, the Democrat leadership and
others of their throng jumping to condemn the torrent of
malicious, racist words spoken and images published in past years
about George W. Bush, as well as Colin Powell and Condoleezza
Rice, Miguel Estrada and other black and white conservatives and
I didn’t think so, either.

TREATING OUR FRIENDS BADLY
Re: Matthew Omolesky’s The Gray Zone: Poland and the Abandoned Missile Defense Shield Initiative:
This article and one regarding the Czechs and their fight for
democracy both highlight a generic question about this U.S.
administration. Why do we treat our enemies so good and
our friends so bad? Just one illustration of such is the insult
of Obama and his lovely “better half” and the way they treated
our ancestor and best friend, the Brits, when they refused to
accept the bust of Churchill. Apparently because of Britain’s
slave trading past. Are these half educated people unaware of the
history of the English people in fighting for over a hundred
years to eradicate the slave trade when it was still profitable?
Contrast this with Obama’s and his wife’s affection for Muslim
Africa and the Muslin Middle East where slavery still goes on and
where women still have no rights separate from their often
abusive husbands. It is inexplicable to say the least. Pray for
the state of Israel. It is obviously going to need our prayers
and support with this gang that believes in nothing but power and
seems to have many grudges against most of our traditions and
especially traditional Christianity. Lastly let us pray for this
generation and those to come. Irving Kristol and Milton Friedman,
two giant intellectual men of character have passed from the
American scene and we are not apt to see their like again for a

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?
