Tyrrell Jr., R. Emmett
March 2010
American Spectator;Mar2010, Vol. 43 Issue 2, p70
The author opines on the status of the U.S. Democratic party and the presidency, noting ties to the 1960s youth culture. He believes that democrats including U.S. President Barack Obama, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and U.S. Congressman Harry Reid are incapable of moving to the political center. He notes the left-wing aspects of former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and President Barack Obama for their thought-to-be negative comments about the U.S. while they were visiting foreign countries.
