Mark July 29 on your calendar — Republican governors from Alabama to Louisiana to Arizona have every reason to unite against this noisy leader and the noisome feds.

July 29 should be a very good day for conservatives. Not only will the Arizona law be going into effect, but it will mark a milestone: the 100th day since the Deepwater Horizon oil drilling rig exploded and sank, resulting in the worst oil spill in our history. The coincidence of time should make it a day of townhalls and rallies across the nation.
The point is not to celebrate a disaster but to praise Arizona’s action in doing what the federal government has failed to do, and to condemn the government’s failure to protect the shores from the tide of oil washing ashore and into the coastal wetlands.
BP may have stopped the leak by July 29, but the oil will still be washing ashore. In the five weeks between now and then, Bobby Jindal should invite Jan Brewer to a townhall on a Louisiana beach to announce Louisiana’s joining in the defense of the Arizona law. Brewer should join him in speaking against the Obama administration’s consistent failure to do its duty to protect our shores.
Tea Partyers would heed this call, and erupt into another summer-long series of townhall meetings to defend the governors and oppose the Obama administration’s serial actions to thwart the will of the voters. It’ll be an unruly, messy summer. Just as our Founding Fathers would have prescribed.

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?
