As I predicted yesterday, it is now being reported that Donald Trump will endorse Mitt Romney rather than Newt Gingrich. It’s no surprise to me since Trump’s main issue (now that he’s stopped talking about President Obama’s birth certificate) is China.
Mitt Romney has the most aggressively anti-China rhetoric of any of the candidates. Romney is right to focus on Chinese theft of American intellectual property but dangerously naive with his populist appeal to “unfair” Chinese trading practices, especially when based on the value of the Chinese currency.
Trump was never actually going to run. He was just keeping himself in the news to boost his television ratings. Romney’s sharing Trump’s idiocy on China gives Trump the most graceful possible way to explain to the fawning news media while he is not entering the race.
As for Romney, he should say “Thanks” to The Donald, but just once, and then never mention it again and do everything he can to keep Trump quiet, and far from the campaign trail. A Fox News poll suggests that three times as many voters are likely to vote against a candidate whom Trump endorsed as are likely to vote for the candidate for that reason.
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?
