Working global warming. Jobless recovery. The peacenick war president. Plus more.

If this recession began in 2007 then how can anyone claim it is over since things are worse today than in 2007 and the first half of 2008? The only way to turn this economy around and possibly save the Obama Presidency from death at the polls in 2012 is a Republican avalanche sweeping away Democrats in 2010 at the local, state and national levels. Then and only then will the nation be able to reverse the Democrat decline (that began with the 2006 elections) — a deterioration being exacerbated by the mere existence of the Obama administration.
Auspiciously, unlike the unimpressive Bill Clinton, Obama isn’t amenable to letting Republicans run the country while he garners the glory. Obama seems to really believe the fawning about his “transformational Presidency.” Of course, could anyone expect less from such an egotistical, arrogant, ignorant, sophomoric, boorish, and narcissistic jackass? Obama makes Jimmy Carter look effective and Bill Clinton humble. No mean feat.
President Obama = American decline — it’s that simple and the
formula will hold true as long as he and Democrats maintain power
over Congress and the Presidency.

REFORTIFIED BY INDECISION
Re: George Neumayr’s Peacenicked:
As the mother of two in the military, a son and a foster daughter, we, like other military families awaken each and every morning demoralized some mornings and highly vexed on others. Our fine military finds itself commanded by a man unworthy of tying the shoes of any soldier or officer. He dallied over 100 days, while over 100 died — killed by an enemy who has been refortified by indecision.
Having survived the Carter years and his catastrophic bulldozing of the military, I recall it took years to rebuild both the military and morale. Now, I see this anemic President as so much worse. Never have I talked to so many dejected and demoralized military members. Most speak of extra care in preparing things, in case they do not return from war. While this is usual preparation for all military members, it has taken on new significance in recent months. Add in the massacre at Ft. Hood, that is completely off anyone’s radar, leaving every military member to question the loyalties and wonder just how this assassination happened and why it is so soon dismissed and only silence lingers.
So, this note is to TAS readers. Find a way to go bless
someone serving in the military. Do it now. Never has the
military needed extra blessing and reminders that we find them as
our personal heroes. Start with discovering who in your hometown
serves. Then find a way to bless through the military member, or
for their families, especially during this time of year. You
won’t need to look far. And lastly remember, the military is the
only thing holding your precious freedoms.

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?
