Thanksgiving Day

Via Drudge: Cambodian First Lady Disses Obama with ‘Sampeah’ Reserved for Servants

DiplomacySo amid all the colorful and flirty photos from President Obama’s first tour of Southeast Asia, what did he actually accomplish? As usual, he served himself politically in what was largely a Potemkin mission abroad.

It was obvious enough from the rubelike gaffes that the president hasn’t been particularly interested or attentive to the affairs of Thailand, Burma or Cambodia as he made his first trip since his re-election. It was pretty much all style over substance.

More Americans than ever before will be using food stamps this Thanksgiving

Hot Air:

Marco Rubio said something the other day that made me want to jump up and cheer: “The way to turn our economy around is not by making rich people poorer, it’s by making poor people richer.” Whoomp, there it is! That, right there, is a masterfully simple and succinct way to take the Democrats’ constant refrains of “fairness” and turn them on their head. The way to help people become more prosperous is definitely not by taking wealth away from some people and having the government divvy it up as they see fit among other people. To paraphrase Frederic Bastiat, a bad economist looks merely to the effects that are immediately seen, while a good economist looks for the effects that are not immediately apparent — and the long-term effects of that kind of redistributionist thinking are that you eventually run out of other people’s money, and that everybody is fighting over a much smaller, less prosperous pie.

What We’re Grateful For: Happy Thanksgiving from the Townhall Team

As Americans everywhere bow their heads in thanks today, the Townhall team wants to take the chance to do the same — starting with you, our readers! You make it possible for us to do what we love to do each day, and we’re all thankful you take the time to stop by our pages. So with an introduction from Abraham Lincoln, the Townhall editors share their gratitude.

In thanks to the Almighty today.

Don’t give up hope! America will survive Barack Obama.

Thank you, one and all.

Regular Right Guy.
