Critics wonder how long women will tolerate certain aspects of President Obama's more curious re-election efforts. There's the odd new campaign video, for example, showcasing HBO's "Girls" actress Lena Dunham, who compares voting for the first time to losing her virginity.
Black helicopters and "one-world government" have long been staples of conspiracy theories across the political spectrum, but, as the saying goes, even paranoids have real enemies. Hudson Institute senior fellow John Fonte has written a new book showing that there really are people in positions of authority who would dilute national sovereignty and transfer political power to unaccountable transnational organizations.
A likely upshot of President Bush's meetings this week with his Canadian and Mexican counterparts in Montebello, Canada, will be a further impetus to the effort to engage in what is euphemistically called the "harmonization" of the three countries' economies, regulatory systems and policies. The effect will be to contribute to what is on track to become one of the most worrying legacies of George W. Bush's presidency: a significant, and possibly irreversible, erosion in the nation's sovereignty.
"The appeal to women voters crafted by the Obama campaign may be one of the reasons why they are deserting it. It would be bad news for all of us, not just the unborn, if such a brutalist and selfish appeal were to succeed," Mr. O'Sullivan adds.
