Victor Davis Hanson…

is brilliant, as usual.

    Victor’s point 5 is especially gratifying. There’s a scene in the move, “True Romance” where Dennis Hopper gets hit in the face. Christopher Walken, in his inimitable style, tells him, “It’s never going to get that good again.”

    Hey, Obama, its never going to get that good again.

  2. Tom the Redhunter Says:

    Ditto that, neo. The Obama Administration is imploding and the Dems will receive a well-deserved thumping at the polls in November.

    The question, of course, is what will happen next. Will Boehner and the House Republicans blow it like Newt Gingrich did? Will Obama beat our expectations and perform a turnaround like Bill Clinton did? Will the Tea Party energize the GOP and hold us/them accountable and thus presage us for more gains in 2012, or will they force the nomination of unelectable nuts?

    Of course there are differences between 1994 and now. But we on the right do have a habit of counting our chickens before they are hatched. I remember how confident we were of big gains in 1998… and then we lost all 6 open Senate seats and lost ground in the House, forcing Newt to resign.

    I’m cautiously optimistic, but am taking no chances. As I trust all of you are wherever you live, I’m working overtime to keep my congressman in office; Frank Wolf, R-VA-10.

    The trouble is, the problem goes well beyond politics and elections. I just read Karl Denninger’s latest Market Ticker:

    Avoidance Will Not Work

    Neo,

    I agree with you….VDH *IS* always brilliant. Many of his pieces are fabulous summaries of how bad the Obama administration is and why. I have a number of them saved for review when arguing with my brain washed/dead liberal friends. He must keep a file of his spot on points.

    I’m not as articulate as VDH. My summary is that I don’t like Obama because he is an inexperienced, incompetent, socialistic, Il Duce-like chin up arrogant, elitist, narcissistic pu……er….I won’t use the last word that pops into my mind.

    The answer to every challenge is to found a new program, borrow billions to run it, hire millions more loyal to the progressive gospel of public employment, and demagogue any who oppose it. The public is starting to see that the president’s ideology is really a mixture of the Ivy League, the left-wing of the Democratic Party, the tired canards of the black caucus, extremist residuals from Rev. Wright and Bill Ayers, and twenty years of university multicultural, utopian pacifist, and moral equivalent indoctrination.

    Very well stated.

    texexec,
    VDH has all of his writings at victorhanson.com, along with pieces from Bruce Thornton and Raymond Ibraham.

    He is a treasure.

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
