Conservative vitriol should be aimed at the real enemy/threat to freedom and traditional American values — Democrat yellow dogs, Obama’s blue lapdogs, New Dealers, Great Society radicals, Obamanites and Obamacons. If we are to further our conservative cause, it will be in and with the GOP. Those who champion a third party are either closet Democrats or sadly misguided and naive.
All in all Tuesday was a good day for the Grand Old Party!

HISSING IN ANTICIPATION
Re: Lisa Fabrizio’s Scouting Report:
The baseball analogies were fun to read.
Mitt Romney has a big problem which may make him unelectable: he is a Mormon.
Eric Cantor has an even bigger problem. You and I don’t care about Cantor’s Jewishness, or Romney’s Mormonism. But the left-wing hate machine is boiling and hissing in anticipation.
I fear this is especially true regarding Eric Cantor.

ALIENATING THE ESTABLISHMENTS
Re: R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr.’s Obama, Obviously:
You are 100 percent correct.
As a 30 year self-employed Executive Recruiter this is the 4th downturn I’ve worked through. There’s one inescapable piece of first hand experience/knowledge, though, I’d like to share with you.
I’m a capitalist and believe in the American Dream. Bush tried to re-run Reagan’s 1980’s with lower taxes, which worked great in the 80’s, not so well on the 2000’s.
The Achilles Heel of “Free Market Capitalism/Free Trading” is labor arbitrage. Meaning, business’ insatiable desire for unrestrained access to cheap foreign labor both outsourced (offshore outsourcing) and in-sourced (H-1B and L-1 visas). Business is behind open borders/amnesty. Business is behind Trade agreements offering incentive for companies to trade jobs overseas for increased corporate profits.
What we have are liberals/Democrats driving up the cost of doing business for a century, then since 2002 an incrementally massive business accelerated response to move work/jobs to cheap intelligent foreigners.
This is how, with a real estate bubble, the Bush economy could see a DOW at 14,000 with not many private sector jobs created outside of real estate/construction and healthcare. The corporate sector (which I’m in) hired few people from November 2001-recovery-to December 2008.
My point is unless Republicans solve the problem of a broken trickle down economics model which drew me to Ronald Reagan being the first member of my ultra liberal Jewish family to ever vote Republican in 1984 Rockefeller/Country Club/Free Trade Republicans will find their message doesn’t resonate with American workers any more than socialism from Democrats.
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?
