Leading Democrats have begun to criticize the whole idea of trying to recall Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. Retiring Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank told the Hill:
I think the people on the Democratic side made a big mistake and the funding thing was a big deal. My side picked a fight they shouldn’t have picked. The recall was upsetting to people, the rerun of the election with [Democratic Milwaukee Mayor] Tom Barrett — it’s not a fight I would have picked. People need to be more strategic about the fights they pick.
Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, a past chairman of the Democratic National Committee, also second-guessed the recall: “It was a dumb political fight — I would have waited until Walker’s reelection.” But Wisconsin Rep. Tammy Baldwin dismissed the idea that Democratic leaders could have stopped a grassroots initiative: “When over 30,000 people just decided they were going to start circulating petitions, what do you do? It was going to happen.”

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?
