It won’t surprise anyone to learn that I think Paul Ryan made the right call. He’s especially right here: “Ryan has hoped that he might play the role of Jack Kemp to the next Ronald Reagan.”
That strikes me as exactly the role Ryan needs to play, and that his many admirers on the right are trying to shoehorn him into one for which he is not ideally suited. Kemp had similar admirers — I was one — and he has a better legacy from the House than from his 1988 and 1996 national campaigns. Imagine if Kemp had run before Kemp-Roth was even enacted.
Ryan will contribute to the movement for a more responsible fiscal policy for years to come.

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?
