Mark Levin’s Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto

Thursday, March 26, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Chatting with Sean Hannity before last night’s program, the subject turned to Mark Levin’s new book, Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto.

Sean told me that a Long Island book signing for Mark had brought out 6,000 people and sold out every book in the store. This isn’t surprising: Mark’s an extraordinary writer, and the conservative movement’s deep desire for plain talk about first principles is going to make the new book an important best-seller.

Mark and I are friendly competitors in many markets, but we both go all the way back to the Meese Justice Department, and he has been working in the vineyards of the movement for a very long time. Terry Jeffrey’s review of the book explains its importance. Order a couple of copies today, and send one to any elected Republican you know.

Hannity’s new program, btw, has really hit its stride, and the Great American Panel is a lot of fun –reminiscent of Bill Maher’s Politically Incorrect panels before Maher went south into his peculiar brand of bitterness. Elected Democrats would be showing a great deal of confidence in their convictions if they began to make the trip to NYC to debate the Administration’s course with Sean.

The (No) News Conference

Wednesday, March 25, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The L.A.Times’ Andrew Malcolm sums up the snore-fest that was last night’s presser:

He made no notable news, and did so quite smoothly. Unless sticking by his guns over cutting charitable deductions is news.

And the former constitutional law professor did go on in his answers, perhaps not by accident. Holding the floor is another means of control for any president. Like males hold the TV remotes.

The result: only 13 questions in 57 minutes.

And as The Ticket noted during its live-blogging, not one single question on either war, including the one the commander-in-chief recently ordered 17,000 more Americans to march into.

Andrew McCarthy notes one verbal tick that the president has developed that warns us of thin-skin ahead.

I watched the late-night replay, having missed the live event while participating in the NRCC’s dinner honoring Bobby Jindal at the Building Museum. Most of the congressmen there were optimistic about their increasing ability to be heard by the voting public, largely because the president’s budget proposals (see below) are both so astonishingly irresponsible and so disconnected from the economic conditions that worry most voters.

Last night’s press conference telegraphed increasing insecurity on the president’s part about his budget and about his way forward. Filibusters are not the tactics of the confident, and the defensiveness throughout the Q-and-A underscores President Obama’s nervousness that large parts of his own party in Congress are revolting from the prospect of this massive lurch towards wild spending in support of half-baked dreams of remaking the country.
