writes me this morning: "Were VDARE.COM and I `ahead of the curve` with the article calling for impeaching George II?"
Peter, whose June 2 article was bluntly titled A 9/11 Father, Lifelong Republican, Says: Time To Impeach Bush Over Immigration
, was referring to Sunday`s Washington Post
piece by National Review`s
Byron York: Base To Bush: It`s Over
(July 8, 2007). Peter notes that York quotes a "conservative strategist"
as saying that Bush and his party`s base are "in divorce court"
WaPo is hosting an online forum with York today at noon ET. I invite VDARE.COM friends to join in
and ask York if he now regrets NR`s slavish support for Bush. Perhaps significantly, in view of our VDARE.COM debate
about how seriously to take NR`s welcome return to immigration patriotism, York seems to rank not pardoning Scooter Libby above amnesty as a base-busting Bush blunder.
