Skip to comments.America Is at Risk of Boiling Over

And out-of-touch leaders don't see the need to cool things off.
It is, obviously, self-referential to quote yourself, but I do it to make a point. I wrote the following on New Year's day, 1994. America 16 years ago was a relatively content nation, though full of political sparks: 10 months later the Republicans would take the House for the first time in 40 years. But beneath all the action was, I thought, a coming unease. Something inside was telling us we were living through "not the placid dawn of a peaceful age but the illusory calm before stern storms."

To be added or removed from the
"The Wall Street Journal" Ping List,
Morons like her backing Obama during the election didn’t help things any.
I can't take anything she says seriously.
odd commentary coming from an elitist butterfly like Peggy.
I am not feeling the sincerity here.......anyone...?
What does Peggy Noonan know?
I could have told her this was coming before Obama was elected and she was writing columns praising him.
Yikes, she supported OBAMA???
I didn’t know that.
I never could quite take her seriously, since her writing
and where she always seemed to go with her ‘themes’,was a little too determined by her hormones, like that piece she wrote in the aftermath of 9-11 and the new surge in patriotism and militarism on the cusp of the Afghanistan
involvement. “The real men are back in town!” she crowed.
Then , years later, she supports this narcissistic pampered Metrosexual Ideologue Obama.....jeez, Peggy, hang it up already!
Having said that, I can’t believe WSJ published this tripe.
It’s a good year out of date, and woulda been painfully tepid EVEN THEN.
"Romney Disses Palin Again - This Time by Proxy"
"Who's Mike Murphy? He's a Romney guy!
He's hated Palin from Day One...when she was announced as McCain's VP nominee,
he was the jerkwad on the air with Peggy Noonan when she made her infamous hot-mike disparaging remarks about Palin...
nd he himself was calling the Palin choice "gimmicky" and "cynical."
They never gave Palin a chance.
They had contempt for her and for the ordinary Americans she represents."
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."
The Palmetto Scoop reported:
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romneys former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
The problem is not that our kids won’t be wealthier than we are. Its the “same old serpent” as Abe Lincoln once said, or “a long train of abuses and usurpations” as Tom Jefferson wrote.
Peggy, lay you hand on your desk and I will wack your knuckels with the edge of my old heavy duty wooden ruler!
Noonan’s article - well concealed REMORSE for supporting a obvious loon in the run up to the 2008 elections... Noonan was a FOOL and is now only recognizing it... But fools cannot be trusted even in their remorse... because they will be easy fools again in the future...
You’ll notice the belle of East Rutherford uses terms like “our thought leaders”. Just that term tells the reader what side she’s on.
And she can't address immigration without resorting to that overused and untrue nonsense. How many times does it have to be said that if we enforce the law and cut off the job and government benefit lures, the illegals will largely self-deport, and those that don't can be deported as they come in contact with law enforcement over the months and eyars. Those who refuse to see that simply don't want our laws enforced, or the illegal alien problem solved.
Oh, just do us all a favor and go far away to wallow in your pitiful self righteousness Peggy.
If the Boy Scouts this young are booing Obamalamadingdong just think of what the future holds.
Now that’s what I call “Hope and Change!”
I agree. I sense a hack writer trying to scramble back up the slipperly slope to keep those cards and letters (containing checks) comin’ in. She’s a gifted wordsmith but after allowing her true colors to show through in 2008 I read her stuff occasionally with about as much credibility as I’d give to a RINO who will say whatever it takes to get elected.
They aren't allowed to come here, or stay here, because we are compassionate, but because certain of our "leaders" need them to force fundamental changes upon the nation, changes against our wishes, changes they cannot impose any other way.
Unfettered illegal immigration is the stone that will kill our republic, and give the would be dictators the easily corrupted democracy they desire.
