Or is he just an “untouchable” member of the Ruling Class?
(Page 3 of 3)
My wife objected to making all owners pay — including those with no spill-over material in the common areas — for the junk that had accumulated there as a result of the willingness of a few tenants or owners to violate the by-laws.
As it happened, the various people who assembled at the apartment complex for this meeting were all in a hurry to get to another event — a neighborhood meeting of reelect Obama acolytes.
But you could almost hear the intake of breath when my wife used the verboten word “commie” at the dinner party with old acquaintances! Oh, what an evil word — any lefty will tell you. Shades of a new McCarthyism stoked by Tea Party sentiment! How dare anyone stand up for property rights!
My friend James Delingpole, the English author and columnist, has written, “My problem with Barack Obama isn’t that he’s a black; my problem with Barack Obama is that he’s a white liberal.”
Actually, Obama is both of those things — and those two things taken together account for the unwillingness of many people either to criticize and even to tolerate sharp criticism of his presidency. They give him a new kind of “untouchable” status — being above serious criticism both as consequence of the mere fact of his race and as a consequence of his being a leading light in the Ruling Class that defines the perameters of political correctness.
John McCain — who has always craved the good opinion of the news media — may have been unwilling to put that at risk in mounting a strong attack on the values and leftwing political beliefs of his opponent.
Let’s hope Mitt Romney doesn’t make the same mistake. I don’t think he will.
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?
