President Obama just announced yet another homeowner bailout. He insists his “simple” plan – which puts taxpayers on the hook for banks which are forced to lend more money than a house is worth – poses no risk to the rest of us. Wasn’t this exactly the type of reckless and unjustified expansion of government – in effect, forcing us all to take on second mortgages to pay for our neighbors’ homes – which kindled the Tea Party movement in the first place?
My New Obama
By Asher Embry
So yet again I’m asked to pay my neighbor’s mortgage
The reflex creeping up my leg feels nothing like a thrill.
O says it’s really simple; since the banks, he’ll make them pay.
But me, I’ve seen that farce before; it costs me either way.
I searched the Constitution since a document so
Surely guarantees us all a lower mortgage rate.
But no such thing; a fact confirming what we always knew:
Barack consults a different Constitution than we do.

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?
