George Will | February 11, 2001

George W. Bush is a conservative who seems--there is no accounting for taste--to like people. Which is one reason he has confounded post-Florida predictions by producing a honeymoon.

David Limbaugh | February 10, 2001

One of my favorite economists, Larry Kudlow, writing for National Review Online, suggested that President Bush "is essentially governing under Ronald Reagan's policy agenda." I agree, but Kudlow got me to thinking about the different dynamics operating today and Bush's prospects for implementing his agenda, particularly his tax cut.

Robert Novak | February 10, 2001

For all the new power provided George W. Bush as president, it has deprived him of a pleasure he enjoyed while governor of Texas: communicating privately with friends and close associates via e-mail.

Ann Coulter | February 09, 2001

After repeatedly accusing John Ashcroft of essentially belonging to the Klan and harboring a secret desire to take away women's right to vote and to murder them personally in back-alley abortions, the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee made it clear that there would be no more Mr. Nice Guy when President Bush sends up his first Supreme Court nominee.

Oliver North | February 09, 2001

The Bush-Cheney administration is on message, on a roll, and has the crowd that trashed the White House and pillaged Air Force One on the run.

Maggie Gallagher | February 09, 2001

Two years ago Nicole Kidman boasted that she was beyond the seven-year itch, was finally "safe." This week Tom Cruise and Nicole announced that after 11 years they were calling it quits. Not exactly a Valentine story.

Charles Krauthammer | February 09, 2001

Israel has so long been frozen in an insoluble existential dilemma--how to deal with enemy neighbors whose most fervent hope is Israel's destruction--that for almost two decades the country has remained quite evenly split between right and left.

Thomas Sowell | February 08, 2001

The recent publication of a collection of Ronald Reagan's radio broadcasts from the 1970s is not only a fitting tribute on the occasion of his 90th birthday, it provides a great insight into the thinking behind his policies as president in the 1980s.

Brent Bozell | February 08, 2001

Do you wonder how it is that the left always seems to be rolling in money, with countless millions to spend anytime there is a political battle to be fought?

Larry Elder | February 08, 2001

Opponents began yelling immediately after President George W. Bush announced his plan to encourage federal funding of so-called faith-based programs.

Emmett Tyrrell | February 08, 2001

The political jungle suddenly throbs with news. The Clintons' glory shrinks by the day. The newly arrived Gentleman President swells in national esteem.

George Will | February 08, 2001

Say it ain't so. Actually, don't bother. It is so, and it illustrates the role of rules, written and unwritten, in making sport something worth caring about.

Robert Novak | February 08, 2001

When George W. Bush announced that he would make an unprecedented visit to their policy retreat at Farmington, Pa., last Sunday, House Democrats loaded up for a shoot-out.

Michelle Malkin | February 07, 2001

If you are looking for male role models, men with spines of steel, men of courage, and men of honor, don't open a newspaper or turn on the TV. All you'll find are louts:

Walter E. Williams | February 07, 2001

Johnny Cochran and a group of successful trial lawyers plan to bring class-action suits against the federal government and some private companies they say profited from slavery.

David Limbaugh | February 07, 2001

In my last column I argued that George Bush was confounding the media. I want to expand on that theme. He is also confounding the entire Democratic Party, which is already experiencing post-election discord.

Debra J. Saunders | February 07, 2001

Over dinner, the middle-class, suburban family of activists discusses the time each of them has spent behind bars. Ron, the 64-year-old patriarch, is a gruff, much-decorated Vietnam vet who likes a Rusty Nail at cocktail hour.

Linda Chavez | February 07, 2001

There are some stories too terrible to read. And yet we must read them, because in the end they pose questions all of us must answer. The saga of Clarence and Ernest Wright is such a story.

Phyllis Schlafly | February 07, 2001

Although California decisively defeated a school voucher initiative on the ballot last November, its Legislature may have done more to promote school choice than the defeated proposal could have done.

William F. Buckley | February 07, 2001

In the matter of President Bush's determination to proceed with an anti-missile system, the fundamental questions are pretty easily analyzed.

Jack Kemp | February 07, 2001

In his first year as president, Ronald Reagan told an audience at Notre Dame University that "The West will not contain communism, it will transcend communism.

Bruce Bartlett | February 07, 2001

One of the reasons why it is so hard to implement sensible economic policies in Washington is that Occam's Razor operates in reverse inside the Beltway.

Mona Charen | February 06, 2001

Sure it was bad. It reeked. But from the response, you'd almost suppose that it was new. Former President Clinton (it still gives one a warm rush of relief to type that phrase), on his way out the door, pardoned an international fugitive named Marc Rich.

Jacob Sullum | February 06, 2001

Almost all of our furniture comes from Ikea. We like the fact that most of the store's merchandise is inexpensive without looking cheap.

Bill Murchison | February 06, 2001

What a spectacular and wonderful week, my fellow Americans, to talk about tax cutting -- the week of Ronald Reagan's 90th birthday. Cheers! Whoopee! Here's to a man who, in addition to other considerable virtues, understands economics.

Oliver North | February 05, 2001

On the campaign trail, George W. Bush promised to make education his first priority. It took him three days as president to do so.

Debra J. Saunders | February 05, 2001

I wanted to watch the 10 p.m. news, but hit Channel 2 early and ended up with the last 10 minutes of "Reality TV's Funniest Moments" on the screen. Can network TV sink any lower?

Emmett Tyrrell | February 05, 2001

At the risk of sounding controversial, let me deposit on the public record a thought: Bad health can be good for you.

Bruce Bartlett | February 05, 2001

It is important to remember, however, that the national debt is only one part of the federal government's indebtedness.

John Leo | February 05, 2001

A crisis occurred this week on "Temptation Island," Fox TV's new reality show that tries to provoke committed but unmarried couples into promiscuous behavior. One of the women mentioned that she and her man had a 2-year-old child.

Robert Novak | February 05, 2001

WASHINGTON -- An ebullient Terence McAuliffe invited even old critics like me to a gala reception at Washington's Union Station Friday night in advance of his guaranteed election the next day as the Democratic Party's national election.

David Limbaugh | February 04, 2001

George Bush utterly confounded his detractors with a great first week in office. For reasons I will explain, he will probably continue to confound them.

Charles Krauthammer | February 04, 2001

Advocates of campaign finance reform have seized on the Marc Rich pardon--and the $1 million Rich's ex-wife gave to the Democratic Party--as a powerful new argument for reform.

George Will | February 04, 2001

The revival of government by grown-ups continues. Professor John DiIulio will head the new White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.
