Obama leadership in practice. Dylan weather. An American Peace Prize. Brit decline. Plus more.

Re: Hal G.P. Colebatch’s The Blind Men and the Elephant:
In his article “The Blind Men and the Elephant,” Hal Colebatch
fairly summarizes the massive decline in various aspects of
British life. However, he suggests that this has all happened in
the last 11 years of left-wing control by the Labour Party. I
left Britain 13 years ago, and was happy to do so as the decline
so aptly detailed by Mr. Colebatch was already well underway
then, after 18 years of Conservative Party government. While not
trying to defend the Labour Party for its role in this decline, I
don’t recall too many attempts by the Conservative Party to turn
back this tide.

STANDING THE TRUTH
Re: Jeffrey Lord’s Biggest Story of 2009: The Rise of the Virtual Newsroom:
As usual Jeffrey Lord makes his point re the virtual newsroom in
convincing detail. What to me remains so frustrating is that many
of my relations and acquaintances remain blissfully unaware of
the fraud and misinformation from the unrelenting
progressive-liberal media. These folk who have jobs, families,
values, and every day lives that one would think would make them
definitely amenable to the conservative messages, that as Mr.
Lord details is available from so many sources, just refuse to
acknowledge reality. Much like Black Americans and working class
citizens that continue to support politicians whose policies are
dooming them to perpetual poverty and second class citizenship
these people, I guess, just can’t stand the truth.

THE RIGHTFUL PRIZE WINNER
Re: James M. Thunder’s George C. Marshall: The Berlin Wall and the Nobel Peace Price:
The Nobel Peace Prize properly belongs in perpetuity to the
American taxpayer, who has paid and continues to pays for much of
whatever peace that has existed in the world over the past 60

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.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
