I agree with Reid that foreign policy isn’t going to be the biggest issue in the fall election campaign. I also agree that Obama is stronger with the voters on the issue than Republicans think. Don’t get me wrong, his foreign policy is listless: Afghanistan is deteroriating, Pakistan is a growing problem, the Islamist Spring continues apace. But with some detours, Obama has groped toward the war on terror most Americans want: killing terrorists without starting large-scale wars (Libya was ill-advised but didn’t involve as many “boots on the ground” as Iraq).
But the terrorist attack against Israeli tourists Aaron posted about reminds us that unexpected events have a way of making foreign policy matter again. Note the Iran angle. You may not be interested in foreign policy, but foreign policy is interested in you. The original version of that quote, attributed to Leon Trotsky, may apply too.
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?
