Dear Mr. President:

As a 64-year-old, lifelong fiscal conservative and Republican since Richard Nixon, may I humbly thank you? In the eight months or so since you took office, you have succeeded in reviving a party, the GOP, that many had left for dead.

 

  • You have named men to office so wildly irresponsible, so extreme in their positions, so vulgar in their means of expression, that they have made the Republican Party regain its of gleam of gentility and good graces. I am not talking only about the tough guy/ballet dancer Rahm Emanuel, who screamed like a jilted drunken sorority girl at GOP leaders after Joe Wilson's outburst (itself a disgrace) on Sept. 9. I am talking about a high White House official who called Republicans by a barnyard epithet at a public speech recently. This is the same guy who signed a petition to investigate whether the government caused 9/11 — itself a favored position of Neo-Nazis and other nut jobs. Thank you. I thought no one could outdo an appointment like Henry Paulson, Bush 43's treasury secretary — but you have.

     

  • You have proposed a national healthcare plan so wildly extravagant, incomprehensibly complex, and over the top that it makes President George W. Bush's budget gaffes seem like blips — plus you have told fibs about it so immense that you have embarrassed yourself as a public figure.

    To read the entire column go here now.
