I read this hoping for some enlightenment.
But considering the source -- George F Will is one step to the right of William F. Buckley and Orange County is so Republican the oranges are actually red -- there was nothing new here at all.
Having said that, it is heartening to see how Alaska has reacted to Joe Miller's challenge of the write-in vote for Murkowski...
I just don't understand why the Gore v Bush thing is being brought back to life. Any idea, MM? Do you think it's meant as a diversion?
it is the 10th anniversary of an historic decision. AS GW correctly points out, the courts should never have been involved.
Duh! Thanks, Ron...I didn't even think about it being the 10th anniversary.
I think they should have done a recount for the entire state.
That is correct, the courts should have never been involved.
Bush won the original count and then the recount.
Who needed a court decision when the election had already settled it?
Oh yeah, the democrats who did everything they could to steal the election.
I hate to think about it. Imagine how different things would be if Gore had won. Would his administration have been on top of the 9/11 warnings and prevented them? Even if the attacks still occurred, I'm almost certain it wouldn't have resulted in a decision to invade Iraq.
It kind of makes me ill to think about the ultimate consequences of that Supreme Court decision.
Even the judge who voted against the decision says it time to put it behind.
do we want to keep looking backwards, it could account for the lack of forward progress.
If we look back we see Monica Lewinsky, and Jimmy Carter failing to free the hostages in Iran.
We also see Congress and all the Presidential Candidates shirk their primary job and spend two years begging for votes.
They were still begging for votes when the economy collapsed, and they looked like a deer in the headlights right before the deer got run over.
I am sure that we have enough problems today that time spent on them would be more beneficial than looking back.
Lessons could be learned from the past, but our congresses and presidents didn't seem to learn anything, as evidenced by the repetition of history.
Korean War -> Vietnam War -> Desert Storm -> Afghanistan -> Desert Storm 2 (Iraq)
The focal point today should be China and Pakistan

Is it really true that President Obama has never visited the Normandy celebration of WWII ? Of the six times that An American president has NOT been to Normandy on the celebration day , all 6 of these no -shows are President Obama's to celebrate ?

Personally, i feel it's a huge leap forward. What are your views ?

I think the article makes some good points. In addition Obama has spent more time on vacations, playing golf, and fund raising etc while ignoring D-Day, Memorial Day, and the on going oil spill crisis. This certainly doesn't look like the change he was talking about when he was running for office.
