Good Friday Links

The Council has spoken! Here are the latest Watcher's Council winners.

Read Daniel Greenfield's Friday Afternoon Roundup -- Common Practice.

Here's Caroline Glick's latest column, about Abbas and his partnership with Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Yet Israel is always seen as the villain!

Antisemitism on our college campuses: "Pro-Palestinian activists leave ‘eviction’ notices for Jewish NYU students".

I always like Peter Wehner's columns at Commentary Magazine, and this one was no exception. It's titled "Obama’s Staggering Record of Failure"
and includes this recap: "It’s not simply that Mr. Obama has fallen short of what he promised; it’s that he has been, in so many respects, a failure. Choose your metrics. Better yet, choose Mr. Obama’s metrics: Job creation. Economic growth. Improving our health-care system. Reducing the debt. Reducing poverty. Reducing income inequality. Slowing the rise of the oceans. Healing the planet. Repairing the world. The Russian 'reset.' Peace in the Middle East. Red lines in Syria. Renewed focus on Afghanistan. A new beginning with the Arab world. Better relations with our allies. Depolarizing our politics. Putting an end to the type of politics that 'breeds division and conflict and cynicism.' Working with the other party. Transparency. No lobbyists working in his administration. His commitment to seek public financing in the general election. The list goes on and on."

Unfortunately, the countdown clock shows that Obama has plenty of time for further destruction before he's out of office.

Meanwhile, read about the continuing emphasis on dependency and personal irresponsibility: "Chicago Public Schools Now Phoning Home to Make Sure Kids Are Signed Up for Welfare." What an embarrassment for our formerly self-reliant country!
