Democracy is Bad (in Egypt)

February 8, 2011 (TheRightsWriter.com) -- President Obama’s role in pressuring Egypt is dangerous and, according to some, possibly impeachable. His demand that “orderly transition…must begin now” will only destabilize a key ally and help move the Muslim Brotherhood closer to power. Obama’s solution — “free” elections that must include the Brotherhood — will replace a secular, pro-Western regime … [Read more...]

Polls: ObamAlbatross May Not Last to 2012

A series of new polls show Barack Obama has become so politically radioactive that even many Democrats do not want him at the head of their ticket in 2012. Everyone understands, if polls are accurate and the elections are free of fraud, the Republican Party will do well tomorrow. But how well? The Gallup Organization, a non-partisan polling firm respected for its work since the Eisenhower … [Read more...]

All the Rage

THIS WEEKEND’ WASHINGTON CORRESPONDENTS DINNER DEBASED OUR POLITICAL DISCOURSE IN A WAY NOT EVEN THE LEFT HAD NOT PREVIOUSLY SUCCEEDED, but Wanda Sykes’ death wish was not the cause in itself.

The policies Bush advocated in his speech from the Oval Office would enshrine our current state of lax border security under the guise of enforcement. He promoted a tepid and inadequate response in order to bolster an unpopular labor program that would effectively grant amnesty to tens of … [Read more...]

A Failed Former President

The only thing more painful than listening to Jimmy Carter lecture President Bush on how to conduct a successful presidency was living through his disastrous attempt to turn his advice into reality. As I noted earlier this week, Carter has channeled his hatred of non-leftists, secular and religious, into a glut of slanders in his new bestseller, Our Endangered Values. He charges his … [Read more...]

Where Pat Buchanan Went Wrong

I wrote several book reviews at FrontPage Magazine, including virtually every book Pat Buchanan wrote during my tenure there. In hindsight, these were hypercritical and, more damning for me, did not engage with the substance of his arguments. As I place this on my website nine years to the day I first wrote it, I can say this is perhaps the most defensible of my reviews of his work, which is … [Read more...]
