    (August) polls showed 3/5's of Americans opposed to military action..... and growing by the minute. This led Obama's secretary of state to assure everyone that whatever the US did would be “unbelievably small,” even as he compared Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad to Hitler. Whip counts suggested the House would vote the measure down .....and indications the president could not even get 50 votes in the Senate, controlled by Obama's own party. And so a roundelay that began with Obama announcing his decision to launch a military strike at a time of his choosing suddenly turned into the president and his...

    The organizers of yesterday's "Day Without Immigrants," who are also responsible for other recent demonstrations demanding special treatment for illegal aliens, have betrayed not only the people they claim to be helping but everyone else who is trying to find a rational and civil answer to an incredibly complex issue. With their psychotically provocative behavior, these radical lunatics of the Left are moving the ideological goalposts of this debate toward the restrictionist Right. Unless they wise up, by the time they're through every politician in this country outside the inner cities will be paying lip service at the very least...

    ........the idea that something has to be done about illegal immigration is in part due to politically deranged conduct on the part of those who claim to be working on behalf of illegal aliens. The demonstrations that have drawn hundreds of thousands to the streets in cities across the country in the past few days - are politically incomprehensible. If their purpose is to influence the political debate in a direction favorable to the interests of illegal aliens, then their organizers are deluded. The rapidly rising concern about the issue is a clear indication that the first round of demonstrations...
  • Repeat of John Podheretz' "Bush Country" on C-Span2, Sunday Morning at 9AM EST

    Sunday morning at 9AMEST C-Span2 will repeat the program of a discussion of his book Bush Country by John Podheretz, taped in late February at Barnes and Noble in NYC. Podheretz accuses both the left and right of being engaged in a "great forgetting" of the magnitude and implications of 9/11 and says that the way Bush has handled that outrage has made him a president of substance and importance. More enjoyable than his talk, however, is the way Podheretz handles several hecklers - for instance: "the subtitle of my book is 'How Dubya Became a Great President and Drove...
  • 'Bush Country: How Dubya Became a Great President While Driving Liberals Insane'

    It appears that Joan Walsh of thought she was a pretty smart cookie, parading her Scholastic Aptitude Test score of 1200 as proof. Like many of her media colleagues she considered President Bush’s intellectual level far below her own. It came as something of a shock for her to learn that the 17-year-old Bush’s SAT score was the same as hers – 1200 – and scored at a time when that was a very hard level to reach. In his new book, "Bush Country: How Dubya Became a Great President While Driving Liberals Insane," widely acclaimed New York Post...
