Tim Carney speaks the truth:
Defending a corporate welfare agency. Attacking the critics of intrusive federal anti-terrorism measures. Giving a President the benefit of the doubt regarding the jailing of journalists critical of U.S. foreign policy. Ignoring multiple, deadly, ongoing, unauthorized wars. Celebrating military victory over a weak country as if creates moral legitimacy. Keeping Guantanamo Bay open.
What has happened to the American Left?
Barack Obama happened, that’s what.
During the Bush Era, I watched, disgusted, along with many of my conservative friends, as large chunks of our “movement” tossed their principles out the window in support of “Our President.” No Child Left Behind. Medicare Part D. The Iraq War. Overspending. Pork-barrell spending. Saving Arlen Specter. I found all of these things un-conservative, but many journalists, publications, and institutions on the Right signed on with them, in many cases largely out of loyalty or deference to a mostly conservative GOP President.
I think the same thing is happening to the Left today.
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.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
