Cruising the Web

John Podhoretz notes that Mitt Romney has found a theme to sum up all that conservatives dislike about Obama's method of governing - he has put government at the center of American life. Jonah Goldberg hits the same theme when he defines Obama's policies as neo-socialism.
“In much the same way that neoconservatives accepted a realistic and limited role for the government, Obama tolerates a limited and realistic role for the market: its wealth is necessary for the continuation and expansion of the welfare state and social justice,” Goldberg wrote. “While neoconservatism erred on the side of trusting the nongovernmental sphere — mediating institutions like markets, civil society, and the family — neosocialism gives the benefit of the doubt to government.”

Dick Morris explodes Rick Santorum's delusion that he still has a chance to block Mitt Romney's nomination.

Obama's energy policy is really "very few of the above."

John Hawkins identifies "five ways that Obama has decimated the American economy."

So what do all the liberals who are so quick to find racism in whatever a conservative says have to say about Marion Barry's blast against "Asians" coming into D.C.'s Ward 8 and opening up businesses?

Peggy Noonan just can't get over the fact that Barack Obama hasn't turned out to be the healer and non-partisan that he promised to be. She was fooled in 2008 and just isn't that happy about it.
