... he risks approaching a tipping point whereby Obama decides it’s actually better to toss Rahm Emanuel to the wolves, and leap to the clear himself.

Golly, you think? But Obama's shown such loyalty to his underlings up until now!

Gosh awesome to hear this Mark Steyn interview on Christmas. Even if it ain’t such happy stuff.

No one else mentioned how odd it was that Obama told no one that the real reason for the delay on his holy internal pronouncement was because Fitzgerald wasn’t needing the time to interrogate people in Chicago but to question Obama and his people.

Not one word about that from the Press.

So Obama has already lied several active and passive times on this issue.
And not one word of criticism about it.

Astounding.

Merry Christmas indeed.

Conrad Black, who is spending the first of what could be six Christmases in jail in Florida on a very thin chain of circumstantial evidence that was nevertheless piled up relentlessly and very effectively by Patrick Fitzgerald

And there is the very dangerous, un-American part of what Patrick Fitzgerald does for a living. Maybe there was no evidence of a real crime because there was no real crime; just a zealous, ambitious lawyer who uses the law as a weapon rather than a tool.

This is also another clear example of why lawyers should never be elected to any office; they get so tangled up in the advocate position about minutiae that the important things get lost in lawyer ego.

I use to listen to Hewitt until he got off on that Mitt Romniney tangent.

Hewitt’s only saving grace is he has Steyn on regularly. Other then that I don’t see any reason to listen to him.

We have reached the Clinton point and might be a bit beyond that. When Clinton lied, the press fawned over how masterfully he did it and and they even commented that it might be good every now and then for people to lie. Astounding, and I won't be surprised if soon we will be told again it is good to to so....

Have a Merry Christmas all....

Steyn is just flat out wrong on this being a perception recession. It is a recession that followed a massive credit and liquidity bubble. We have borrowed against the future for consumption today and the assets we borrowed against are not worth what they were before. We can rightly yell about CRA but no one, save for the enlightened ones, are talking about the massive fraud on Wall St., ridiculous leverage levels of the financial houses that went under, the impact of AIG selling CDS that it couldn't hope to cover, etc,. We have unemployment spiking, investments that keep losing money, widespread asset destruction and a global meltdown underway.

Most people have no clue where this is going. Just wait until the US cannot sell debt in order to make the stimulus or other spending happen.
