This week we saw the passing of Robert Bork, and there have been several nice remembrances – from the New York Post, the New York Sun and the Washington Times, among others.
And the New York Times chimed in with a rather petty take on how Bork wasn't the first Supreme Court nominee to be “borked.”
In another big story from this week (and the one before that, and the one before that): We’re now “teetering on the cliff,” as the Wall Street Journal puts it.
The Journal also examines what we've learned from the failure of House Speaker John Boehner’s “Plan B” for a smaller tax increase.
TheHeritage Foundation is happy that conservatives stood their ground against tax hikes... and they point out that if Senate Democrats had taken action earlier this year, we wouldn’t even be in this predicament. Thanks a lot, Sens. Schumer and Gillibrand.
Meanwhile, John Podhoretz has another take on the situation – he’s not happy at all with rebellious conservatives.
I’m not at all happy with the bait-and-switch we saw thisweek with the President’s “Save General Motors” campaign... but it’s not as though anyone in their right mind ever believed this was a good deal for taxpayers.
It’s still disappointing to talk about Barack Obama as our President, and not as our soon-to-be ex-President – but there’s no changing that now, and I’m ready to close out the year with a spirit of optimism and determination for the battles ahead.
Since this is the last Weekly Wrap-Up of 2012, we have a special “New Years Resolution” Weekly Poll: What are you planning to do in 2013 to fight even harder against the Obama agenda and for conservative principles?
I look forward to seeing how people vote – and have a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
