Speaking of the President’s milestone day, the Washington Post yesterday was clearly disappointed that Mr. Bush wasn’t making a bigger deal of turning 60 or observing his big day ahead of time:
…Bush appeared annoyed when a reporter asked if he planned to treat himself for his birthday, which is Thursday.
“Generally, I celebrate my birthday on the birthday itself,” he scolded.
This “[i]n contrast to President Bill Clinton, whose 50th birthday in office was celebrated with an extravagant, star-filled, televised gala …” A nice reminder. Would Bush numbers be higher if he were an obsessive megalomaniac?
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?
