Like a majority of conservative Republicans I am mystified that local Party bosses chose an Obamacon to represent the GOP in this special election. Had they selected a solid Republican (a center right candidate) there would have been no need for a Hoffman candidacy or even the abhorrent thought of a Democrat winning the marginally Republican seat.
To defeat Democrats (all who are liberals even Antle’s prized
blue dogs) conservatives must stand by Ronald Reagan’s GOP — a
party further to the right than when Reagan was President. Unless
that happens then Obama, Pelosi and whoever replaces Reid will
continue to control the political agenda and try to morph America
into a Euro-trash state west.

DIRECTED BY MUSLIM FAITH
Re: Jay D. Homnick’s Go Fly Al Qaeda:
The men who flew those airplanes into the World Trade Center towers were not Muslim terrorists? They were Al-Qaeda terrorists who happened to be Muslims, and their being Muslims was incidental to the actions they took that day? Not really relevant, eh?
They were Muslim terrorists in the ordinary and correct sense of that usage. Their conduct was animated and directed by their Muslim faith.
What you propose, that is, identifying these men as “Al Qaeda
terrorists” is akin to writing a history of the Second World War
that notes Hiroshima was attacked on August 6, 1945 by a Glenn L.
Martin Company bomber, rather than by an American bomber. Would
that make any sort of sense?

IN DESPERATE NEED OF PUBLICITY
Re: Patrick O’Hannigan’s Arguing with Bono:
Sounds like Bono and Sting, though talented, probably should
refrain from anything related to things other than their music.
They have benefited from the “American Way” with their huge
riches, and now, like many others, glow when mentioning Obama’s
name, because of their own racist tendencies. It seems to me that
many of them just cannot help themselves lathering praise on this
radical leftist, do-nothing, with an empty resume and a book or
two filled with racist comments. Perhaps Bono, assuming he can
read, hasn’t read about the “controlling Whitey” in “Dreams from
my Father”!! Methinks that Bono and Sting, both well past their
prime and in need of ANY publicity, had better get out of their
writing tents and try keeping up with the news. Of course, they
are both from semi-socialist societies, from which they both hide
their wealth, lest it be taken from them by taxes!!

Sting’s right: The virtual Obama is the real Obama.
Frightening thought, isn’t it, that we have a president that is
illusion —or, as a Western saw goes, “All hat, no cattle”?

DEATH ON DEMAND
Re: Ken Blackwell’s Playing for Keeps:
Obama and the Democrats are careful to avoid stating that they are the party of abortion on demand — paid for with federal funding. They skillfully cloak their intent with talk of rights and hide abortion riders in their 1000 plus pages of health insurance bills. They do this knowing that even their most ardent supporters, especially church going minorities, Latinos and blacks, do not support abortion rights. In fact, the vast majority of church going Democrats fall within the ranks of pro-lifers.
As the Democrats, especially Madam Pelosi and Madman Reid, spin and rename the health care debate, Conservatives would be well served by shining a spotlight on the wording of the bill that guarantees abortions on demand and the funding that follows it. Keep the point short and simple: the same people who want to bring us the “Death Panels” for the elderly are the same people behind the legislation for death on demand. The argument lacks subtly, but what has subtly done for the GOP lately?

America. They are fighting to save its very soul from The One and

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

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?
