It’s unfortunate that Felipe Calderon used the opportunity of addressing the U.S. Congress to give the speech that Democrats wanted to hear, as opposed to the one that they very much needed to hear.
During his presidential campaign in 2006, Calderon told the Mexican people that they faced “a choice between the past and the future.” He said:
Moving toward the past would mean nationalization, expropriation, state control of the economy, and authoritarianism, while the future would represent the contrary: privatization, liberalization, market control of the economy, and political freedom.
Had he uttered those words to the U.S. Congress, he would perhaps have been shouted down as — horror of horrors — “a Mexican tea partier.”

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?
