Sept. 11, 1964
On that evening 48 years ago it was still summer, early in the presidential campaign Buckley, whose National Review magazine had given vital assistance to Barry Goldwaters [blah blah blah]
Still, the presidency is not everything, and there will be another election in the next year divisible by four.

George Will is a pompous shmuck and has been forever. “The next year divisable by four”. Blech. He’s sooo clever that he figured out the presidency isn’t important really, we should “concentrate” on 2/3 of the government yada yada yada.
Meanwhile people who dare to think they are just as smart as George Will think he is a fool and gee, duh, there are polls right now showing Barack Obama being defeated by Romney or Santorum.
The GOP doesn’t want to stop Obama. Winning Congress will not change anything.
As Rush says, the Congressional pubbies are only interested in the chairmanships. For those with a taste for history, this is how Bismarck handled the Reichstag: he just by-passed it.
When you take baths in vinegar, you get pickled.
George Will can go to Hell, for the past 10 years or so.
He will double down on executive regulations whose repeals will never get passed his veto.
George Will needs to stick to baseball in his old age. Remember Goldwater's golden years.
George Will’s idea is to stop Obama with a filibusterer in the Senate, and to cede the House and Senate to the Democrats.
I don’t think they even want to hold on to the House or win the Senate. They would love nothing than to see the Tea Party flushed out of the House. And if some of their own elite in Congress have to go to do this, so be it. They would rather complain about things than do anything about it.
Apparently Mr. Will hasn’t heard of the czars or B.O.’s E.O.s.
The baseball expert is right - electing the establishmentarians Mittie or Saintorumn will achieve nothing!
George Will is every Liberal’s favorite conservative. He’ll concede any point (”for the sake of the argument”) so that he can make his point, which is so hopelessly diluted by polite and scholarly language (with a few arcane anecdotes thrown in) that by the time he gets to it, you wonder why he bothered. Little wonder he’s lasted so long on that ABC Sunday show.
All I needed to know was the author. I don’t put any stock in his drivel and didn’t read it.
He is irrelevant.
LOL. I didn’t read either.
Spotted the author and time is too precious!
My dead grandmother or either of my twin infants could beat Obama bloody in this election year. I am certain my five year old could take him in a debate, He is certainly more intelligent!
By the time September rolls around gas will be somewhere north of $5.00, another five to ten million Americans will be on Food Stamps remembering when they could take their kids to Applebee’s once a month and Six Flags every year, Iran will either have gone nuclear or their Oil production completely taken off line by Israel (who will then be in a hot war with Iran's Sock Puppet Hezbollah) GOOD BYE 3.5 million BPD, Syria will be WORSE THAN NOW with potentially fifty thousand casualties and we still haven't scene the results of continued high gas prices on the larger economy, IE: massive Unemployment spike! Companies have cut out all the fat they have and the next move is muscle and bone to maintain profits.
We have a real chance to have a bullet proof House and damn near 60 Senators, many of them more Conservative than at any point in history.
The real problem will be making them fight off the media while rolling back Obama and his damage.
“The question answers itself”.
He’s implying that, both Romney and Santorum may be unelectable, but if one of them might damage Conservatives’ long-term prospects, then we should nominate the other even though he might be unelectable. Gee, I wonder which of those two George Will thinks will damage the Conservative cause?
Romney can’t win, but Santorum will make us look too EXTREME, so nominate Romney. That is the weasely argument he wants to make, but is too cowardly to actually come out and say.
Exactly, considering how chicken-sh*tted the GOP is in stopping his agenda. Can we really, honestly see Mitch McConnell standing up a credible resistance to 0bama`s nomination of a leftist radical to backfill the next conservative justice who steps down or dies?
0bama could name Jeremiah Wright to replace Clarence Thomas and the chances of a successful filibuster to stop it would be no more than 50-50.
Today`s GOP simply can`t hold up under pressure. When faced with a challenge, their first tactic is to whimper and cower in the first corner they can find. 0bama will slice through McConnell and Boehner like a hot knife through room-temp butter.
Much as I despise Reid and Pelosi, I give grudging admiration for their ability and willingness to fight. They never accept defeat, they never back down, they always find ways to win, and they always go for the kill.
