Former House Appropriations Committee Chairman Bob Livingston, who knows a thing or two about cutting spending ($50 billion in actual dollars saved during his first two years as chairman), raises a banner well worth raising in this Washington Times column defending General Services Administration administrator Lurita Doan, whose efforts to save taxpayer money have run afoul of the usual bureaucrats who then ginned up utterly bogus “investigations” into her practices. If conservatives are serious about keeping government spending down, they will provide cover for honest, dedicated appointees such as Ms. Doan. The money at issue mere might seem small potatoes compared to the whole federal budget, but the principles are important. Applied all across government, pretty soon these principles will lead to savings of “real money” (as the old adage goes). Support Lurita Doan!

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?
