Gipper accused VP of being part of “lynch mob.”

The vice president was never shy about political calculations. “Mr. President, my suggestion is: don’t go.” …Biden believed that if the…the effort failed, Obama could say good-by to a second term.
In other words, whether he was opposing Reagan on ending the Cold War by supporting the nuclear freeze and opposing the Reagan Doctrine, or whether he was opposing President Bush 41 on the Persian Gulf War, or opposing President Bush 43 on the surge that finally won the war in Iraq — or opposing President Obama on the decision to kill Osama Bin Laden, Joe Biden has never changed.
He has missed one foreign policy call after another from Reagan to Obama. Getting them wrong and wrong again, from ending the Cold War to getting Osama Bin Laden.
He is to this moment the man Ronald Reagan believed would always appeal to Americans with the raw emotions of prejudice — using race, class-warfare, leftist foreign policy or anything else that was handy.
Joe Biden, Ronald Reagan concluded, was nothing more — or less — than a “smooth but pure demagogue.”
The Gipper called it as he saw it.
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?
