TOO SMART BY HALF
Re: Angelo M. Codevilla’s Reflection on Brains and Barack:
One has to agree with Dr. Codevilla. Over and over again,
even from contributors to TAS, one reads that Mr. Obama, while
perhaps misguided, is blessed with a staggering intellect. We
read that he went to and graduated from Harvard Law School, was
president of Harvard Law Review, taught constitutional law for a
while, and so on. So what? Time and time again, the man has shown
that he knows nothing about history, nothing about current
events, nothing, indeed, about the Constitution. Certainly, he
knows nothing about economics, markets, or business. In fact, all
he seems to be good for, and good at, is a kind of raw
bare-knuckled Chicago-style down-and-dirty politics, which, it
must be said, has served him well, so far. But there must be a
reason he won’t release his SAT scores or any of his transcripts,
and it can’t be because of stellar scores and grades. Mr. Obama
is anything but modest and humble. Until he finally does so, or
at least until he stops talking about “these 57 United States,”
or until he finally passes some law that makes things better,
instead of worse, I wish folks would stop talking about how very
bright he is.

Re: R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr.’s Odious Conservatives:
Good to read Tyrrell calling out this guy to be the phony that he
is. Regrettably there have been a number of conservatives who I
like and respect rushing to his defense.

BULLIES, YET COWARDS
Re: Lisa Fabrizio’s Fear Itself:
“You’d think that the acquisition of power would have softened their own partisan attacks and made them magnanimous…”
Well, no, Lisa, I didn’t think so — given what these true-believing, drunk-on-power, hate-everyone, indecorous, vulgar, arrogant and puerile bullies, yet cowards, continue to show who they are.
But I was ready to be surprised.

THE ANTI-MIDAS TOUCH
Re: Peter Ferrara’s But What’s the GOP Plan?
As has been the case with of all Peter Ferrara’s recent articles
this one is concise, to the point and correct. For Republicans
who are wobbly on repealing Obamacare, because the public likes
“parts of it,” the good news is as a whole Obamacare is unpopular
and the majority of the public understands it is too expensive, a
jobs killer and a detriment to good medical care. As with all of
the Obama agenda, this monstrosity needs to be repealed and
replaced with bold, new and creative ideas that will restore
America’s confidence and prosperity. It is time for the GOP to
“buck up” and go on the offensive. We have nothing to lose by
being brave and bold in the current bloodless civil war, but
trepidation and hesitancy could be lethal not only to the GOP’s
political fortunes, but the country as a whole as the man with
the anti-Midas touch, assisted by the living mannequin and the
old coot, continues to destroy our present and future with their
foolish and juvenile policies.

PLUS C’EST LA MÊME CHOSE
Re: Jerry Brennan’s Darkness at Noon and Night:
I recall Hollywood Communist Dalton Trumbo saying that one of his
proudest accomplishments was preventing Hollywood from making a
movie based on Koestler’s Darkness at Noon. How times

Re: John R. Guardiano’s The Civil War History of Obamacare:
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?
