Ron Paul raised nearly $1.2 million yesterday in a “money bomb.” Those Internet fundraisers put the 2008 Paul campaign on the map when they helped him outraise top-tier candidates. This one was billed as “the REVOLution vs. Romneycare,” A mailing promoting it took shots at the “fat cat bankers” and Wall Street bailout recipients the Paulites argued helped Mitt Romney raise $10 million in a single day earlier this year.
Paul fell well short of Romney’s haul, though $10 million wasn’t the goal. But this focus on the presumed Republican frontrunner is a departure from the 2008 race. When Romney declared last week, the Paul campaign was quick to circulate an archived web page from Romney’s 2002 gubernatorial campaign highlighting the frontrunner’s past support of abortion and a federal assault weapons ban. Now they are attacking Romneycare in a fundraising effort. Paul is trying to front-load his fundraising this time around, because in 2007-08 the money came in too late to make much difference in some early states.

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?
