First, there were the liberaltarians. Now this:
Richard A. Viguerie, the author of Conservatives Betrayed: How George W. Bush and Other Big Government Republicans Hijacked the Conservative Cause, praised Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for extending the ban on “earmarks,” the pork-barrel giveaways that exploded under all-Republican rule.
“Some Republicans, like Trent Lott, apparently still haven’t learned anything from the 2006 election returns,” Viguerie said. “But Nancy Pelosi understands that voters are disgusted with pork-barrel spending. She has my thanks and support for extending the ban on earmarks for this entire year.”
“Let the message from conservatives be loud and clear,” Viguerie added. “We are not slaves to either party. We will support Democrats and Republicans alike when they do the right thing, and we will oppose Democrats and Republicans alike when they do the wrong thing. Our loyalty is to the taxpayers and to sound fiscal policies.”

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?
