Celebrating Rick
By Maggie Gallagher
January 4, 2012 12:36 A.M.

This is a very, very powerful speech. The word I would choose to describe it and him is “grounded.” There’s a reason Rupert Murdoch used a word not often used about a presidential candidate surging: “humility.” The humility that comes from standing for something larger than yourself, for people other than yourself. As Rick said, “Game on!”

this one paragraph is just casually insane

A new Asian direction is loudly announced, but by what means and for what purposes are left unsaid — as is the reality that a broke and unraveling EU, an ever more impotent NATO, and growing German pride and regional fear of German pride, make the original American postwar commitment there more important than at any time since the fall of the Berlin Wall.

anti-neo-cons like to joke that "it's always 1939 with these guys" but holy shit.

Over and over, Romney defends and explains capitalism. And he’s supposed to be the RINO and squish in the race? That’s what I read in the conservative blogosphere, every day. What do you have to do to be a “real conservative”? Speak bad English and belch?

They have no appetite to defend capitalism, to persuade people, to encourage them not to fall for the old socialist and populist crap.

In the off-season (as you say), conservatives are interested in economic winning, and so the mechanisms of capitalism are more welcome. But in political season, they're interested in political winning, and sometimes that consists of appeasing the economic losers. Perhaps a conservative can do so with his hand holding his nose, regretting that it must be done. But it's depressing to see that so many don't even notice the smell.

Santorum does not believe that the categories associated with “class” are useful in discussing how well the American economy is working. Economically, he is correct, since income is fluid. Socially, culturally, it’s a different matter. In our time, I’ve seen precious few cases of gentlemanly Episcopalians with august family trees, significant inherited wealth, and the expectation of political success who really grasp the degree to which life is a fight, and politics is war, let alone at the elemental level where that instinct needs to be lodged. The Bushes never got it. Their twin, Mitt, though technically not old school WASP by dint of being Mormon, doesn’t get it either. How do I know this? Even after prolonged exposure to the media, and other adversaries, from Kennedy to his GOP competitors, he expects to be treated with respect. That’s charming. But it’s a weakness.

our old friend is at it again. Choice bits:

I saw the hatred — the almost animal hatred — that was directed at George W. Bush for eight years. (What a good and decent man he is.) I saw the hatred — the raw, snarling, truly animal hatred — that was directed at a woman named Sarah Palin. It had almost a physical effect on me, this hatred.

I’ll never forget a friend of mine, with whom I’d never discussed politics — “I hate her,” she said. And she had a look in her eye I had never seen before. My friend is a loving person. But she had a look of wild hatred in her eye. I had never heard my friend say she hated anything: al-Qaeda, Pol Pot, cancer — nothing.

Anyway, I am not in the mood to be lectured by Democrats about hating. Many Republicans have tiptoed around President Obama for four years, not wanting to be branded with the scarlet R (not that it helps them).

About him and his speech last night, I’m going to say very little. I was going to start with a general statement about America’s romance with him — and what that says about the country (nothing good, in my opinion). But I have been down that road before, and will again, I’m sure . . .

Let me praise him! He said “alternative universe,” rather than the new, and wrong, “alternate universe.” When I was managing editor of NR, I tried to get young people to stop writing “alternate universe.” I eventually gave up, I think.

Good for Clinton, for holding the line, linguistically . . .

The way Democrats talk about Republicans is absolutely bizarre: They portray Mitt Romney et al. as hard-core libertarians who want to strip government down to practically nothing. Do they know they’re lying? Or are they honestly confused?

The other day, I was reading the latest book by Mark Mazower, the British historian. He was talking about the “Third Way” — a way, he said, between statism and “no-government minimalism.” (I believe that’s what he said. I’m going from memory.)

No-government minimalism! You mean, like Reagan? Under him, the U.S. government got bigger and bigger, just at a less fast rate than before.

Basically giving up the fight here.

http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/316459/democrats-god-and-jerusalem-thomas-sowell#

From the beginning, Barack Obama has tried to downplay the threat of a nuclear Iran. At one time he said dismissively that Iran was just “a small country.”

In fact, Iran is physically larger than Japan, and its current population is slightly larger than what the population of Japan was when the Japanese dealt a devastating blow to the United States with its attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.

A nuclear Iran can do a lot more damage to Israel than the Japanese did to the United States. Moreover, it is well on its way to being able to produce more than the two bombs that were enough to force Japan to surrender in 1945.

Obamedia, Holder Style
By Andrew C. McCarthy

September 19, 2012 11:09 A.M. Comments0

Look, we have a Justice Department in which the attorney general himself — not some middle-management minion but the top federal law enforcement official in the country — attaches himself at the hip to the country’s most notorious race-demagogue, as Eric Holder did with Al Sharpton in agitating for a race-driven, rather than evidence-driven, state murder prosecution of George Zimmerman. Worse, if worse there can be, it is a Justice Department that has adopted a willfully anti-Constitutional, racially discriminatory standard for civil rights enforcement. It is a Justice Department that designs harebrained firearms investigation schemes that inevitably get people killed — including law enforcement officers — and then lawlessly stonewalls congressional efforts to investigate. It is a Justice Department that has pervasively politicized not only enforcement protocols but hiring practices. With this kind of record (and I’ve only scratched the surface), is anyone really surprised that DOJ has pressed the lefty goon squad Media Matters into service as an adjunct of its press operation?

Senegal’s Senate Abolished in Name of Fiscal Responsibility
By Patrick Brennan
September 23, 2012 8:57 P.M. Comments1

If on January 20, a president Romney were to find himself with a still-Democratic Senate and a Republican house, maybe he’ll be tempted to emulate Senegal’s new president:

Senegalese MPs have voted to abolish the senate as part of moves to help the victims of recent deadly floods.

President Macky Sall has said the money reserved for the upper house – about $15m (£9.5m) – will also go towards preventing further flooding.

But critics say the aim is to weaken the opposition as most of the senators were supporters of the ex-president.

The 100 senators had fought to be retained, but lost the vote in the joint session of parliament.

Kate Trinko has just made clear that President Obama’s transformative work on us has yet to be completed. The reeducating of American thinking, to understand that abortion, contraception, and female sterilization are basic health care has yet to stick. She probably still believes, like the people who the New York Times has polled and the swing voters the Susan B. Anthony List has discovered, that people have the freedom to not cover such things, that their religious freedom includes the right to believe and practice such sick thinking. She does not yet know what is best for all, and the true meaning of freedom: having fertility suppressed, drugged as if it were a disease. Four more years and she might get the hang of it.

It's kinda amazing they still let KLO write for them.

If you got your information from the mainstream media — I wish there were a better term — you would never know Romney is an impressive man. You would never know he has been successful in most everything he has ever done. You would never know he was bright, experienced, or capable. Or warm, decent, and charitable.

You would think he was a moron. And a jerk, to boot.

You remember those “ordinary people” at the Republican convention who told about the extraordinary acts of charity Mitt Romney has performed? If Obama had performed those acts, they would be famous. They would be legends, they would have entered the national lore. Schoolchildren would be instructed to sing about them.

Unlike Mitt, I loathe Sesame Street. It bears primary responsibility for what the Canadian blogger Binky calls the de-monsterization of childhood — the idea that there are no evil monsters out there at the edges of the map, just shaggy creatures who look a little funny and can sometimes be a bit grouchy about it because people prejudge them until they learn to celebrate diversity and help Cranky the Friendly Monster go recycling. That is not unrelated to the infantilization of our society. Marinate three generations of Americans in that pabulum and it’s no surprise you wind up with unprotected diplomats dragged to their deaths from their “safe house” in Benghazi.
