As the House Republicans continue their vacation protest, they have some sharp words for President Bush. The New York Times reports on a tart statement from Congressman Thaddeus McCotter (R-Michigan) and the Republican Policy Committee after Bush went to China for the Olympics without calling Congress back into session to haggle over energy policy: “Perhaps our Compassionate Conservative in Chief will bring our absent Democrat Congress some ‘Made in (communist) China’ souvenir T-shirts: ‘Bush went to Beijing and all I got was this lousy five week, paid vacation.”
The statement continues: “Bon voyage, Mr. Bush. House Republicans will fight on for America.” I don’t know what took them so long, and I can think of some issues where this scrappy independence was needed a bit more, but good for them.
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?
