David Frum has a post talking about liberal Republican support for Ron Paul in a recent poll of New Hampshire GOP primary voters. Although Paul’s conservative supporters would say the Good Doctor is self-evidently more right-wing than Newt Gingrich, that’s pretty consistent with the exit poll results from the 2008 primary. I made note of the data in my review of Bill Kauffman’s Ain’t My America for Reason (skip to the third paragraph).
Of course, Ron Paul wasn’t the top choice of liberal Republicans in New Hampshire. That honor went to the winner of the New Hampshire primary and the eventual 2008 GOP nominee: John McCain. (Incidentally, I think Mitt Romney’s lead in the early New Hampshire polls probably reflects his roots as a New England governor and McCain’s absence from the race more than it says anything about his perceived economic competence, though there could be some data that proves me wrong.)
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?
