The long knives are out. Liberal and some neoconservative pundits are claiming that Republicans lost the 2012 presidential election for one basic reason: They have become the party of yesterday's America.
It is a case of "liberal lionization." Even Daily Beast uberanalyst Howard Kurtz notes that the media have developed a man crush on Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., framing him as a "profile in courage," and in gushing terms. But beware, there's agenda afoot, others say.
Robert Caro receives the most interesting mail.
Andrew Breitbart would not have been surprised by the out- pouring of liberal hate after his death. He would have reveled in it, relished it, retweeted it. He enjoyed watching the left unmask itself, revealing pretensions at "civility" to be nothing more than bullying. He would have laughed to see Rolling Stone quietly pulling its ads off the page where Matt Taibbi - a drug-abusing misogynist, Andrew would have noted - had done his worst.
Is America in its twilight years? Patrick J. Buchanan argues it is. Americans, especially conservatives, should heed his warnings. The very future of our republic is at stake. Mr. Buchanan has written the political book of the year - and maybe of our time.
Do you take pride in calling yourself a conservative, liberal or libertarian or using any other type of political label? If so, be forewarned: Your days are numbered. The thought police are out in full force, ready to sweep away this crime wave known as (gasp) political ideology.
I want Republicans to win. But not just for the sake of it. It is not enough simply to get power. Republicans must demonstrate that they actually understand why they were sent home in 2006 and 2008 and that they are 100 percent committed to changing the direction of Washington now that America seems poised to give them another chance. Fail to do that, and the American people will send them home again.

"To be a patriot is to love your country as it is," he writes. "Those who seem to despise half of America will never be trusted to govern any of it. Those who cherish only the country's past will not be entrusted with its future."
Mr. Frum says that the right is too obsessed with bashing President Obama.
