William Kristol and Peter Wehner, even though using the polite language of statesmen, have delivered a scathing indictment against our absent commander in chief. Considering that Obama is indeed the CIC, court-martial for dereliction of duty doesn’t seem unreasonable. Unfortunately, I don’t think we’ll even get impeachment.
I know that, for many, the Constitution these days is just passé. (I mean, if the leader of the House Dems can’t understand it, who can?) David Rivkin and Andrew Grossman try to resuscitate that vital document in the context of the Left attack on the right to bear arms.
Roger Simon deftly ties together Dr. Benjamin Carson and the racism that still poisons the heart of the Democrat party.
Upon hearing the Pope Benedict is retiring, CNN has leaped into the fray with inchoate conspiracy theories and claims that the child abuse scandal is driving Benedict out. I have absolutely no doubt, though, that the Pope spoke the truth when he said his health, mental and physical, is the reason he is retiring. One of the things I’ve seen watching my Mom and her friends age is that, just as the first 18 or so years of a person’s life are a time of incredibly rapid change, so too are the years after 80 for most people (and Benedict is 85). For my mother, her 80th birthday was like stepping off a cliff — within months, she went from vital elderly, to decrepit old. And it’s not just my Mom. It’s the norm at her retirement home. Just as the very young grow up at warp speed, the very old age at warp speed. I think that Benedict is wise to arrange for an orderly transition and, even more important in these times, is making sure to have a say in the Papacy’s future direction.
Had it been an injured Israel, the Palestinians would have ripped him to shreds and bathed their hands in his blood. Because it was an injured Palestinian, the Israeli Defense Force acted rapidly to save his life.
If Wolf Howling writes it, it’s good. So when he turns his eye to the subject of the Obama administration’s war on children and family, with ammunition supplied by ObamaCare, you know it’s a post you’ll want to read.
