When President Obama gave a speech before the State Department on May 19th concerning the Middle East and North Africa, he made the following remarks about the unrest in Syria:
The Syrian people have shown their courage in demanding a transition to democracy. President Assad now has a choice: He can lead that transition, or get out of the way. The Syrian government must stop shooting demonstrators and allow peaceful protests.
Predictably, Assad has ignored Obama and his regime has continued to shoot demonstrators. It is estimated that 77 children have been killed by Syrian forces. Actually, make that 79. Two boys (aged 12 and 13) were killed today in separate attacks in Homs and al-Kasweh.
So what is President Obama going to do to ensure that Assad gets out of the way? Not a damn thing. Assad has no reason to modify his behavior. With President Obama announcing troop withdrawals from Afghanistan before General Petraeus has finished his work and taking a back seat in Libya, Assad has no reason to take anything Obama says seriously. If Colonel Qaddafi is still hanging on Libya then Assad isn’t getting out of the way anytime soon.
Besides it’s not like Assad is doing anything that would truly offend President Obama’s sensibilities like constructing Jewish settlements.
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.

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?
