Hope and change spring eternal at the New York Times. It didn’t bury yesterday’s bad economic news, headlining instead at the top of page 1 today: “GROWTH SLOWED IN FIRST QUARTER FOR U.S. ECONOMY: AN ANNUAL RATE OF 1.8%.”
But then there’s this priceless subhead: “May Be Temporary — Oil Prices and Winter Weather Blamed.”
Before you know it, the report itself is channeling Chance the Gardener: “Economists say many of these problems will fade later in the year and economic growth will hasten through the spring.”
I’m not making this up, not even the part that has one economist, her “fingers crossed,” hoping that “last quarter’s dismal news” was, in her words, “a pause, not a trend.”
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?
