Andrew Ferguson has reviewed Dinesh D’Souza’s new book, The Roots of Obama’s Rage, in the Weekly Standard. He goes into the many layers of problems with D’Souza’s argument that Obama is motivated purely by some kind of “anti-colonialism.” One insight in Ferguson’s piece is that D’Souza-style suspicions about the presidency are common to the left:
Like Ronald Reagan before him, George W. Bush was reviled for eight years by Democrats driven mad by a sputtering rage-the “most right-wing president in history”!-but it’s only a matter of time until they rediscover him as a mild-mannered figure, the signer of campaign finance reform, funder of African AIDS relief, would-be grantor of amnesty to illegal aliens; an able if sometimes misguided man whose public service stands in stark contrast to whatever revolting Republicans have come after him. The Dubya renaissance will begin the moment President Christie takes his hand off the Bible and begins his Inaugural Address.
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?
