David Limbaugh | March 01, 2003

Some have suggested the conservatives' hawkishness toward Saddam Hussein can be traced to their search, since the end of the Cold War, for new bogeymen to replace the Soviet Communists as the focus of their aggressive propensities. They're wrong.

Robert Novak | March 01, 2003

President James P. Hoffa and other Teamsters Union officials were so enraged by Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao's performance Wednesday at the AFL-CIO's winter meeting in Hollywood, Fla., that they privately pronounced an end to President Bush's long courtship of the big union.

Thomas Sowell | February 28, 2003

One of the many fashionable idiocies that cause American schools to produce results inferior to those in other countries is the notion that education must be "relevant" to the students -- and especially to minority students with a different subculture.

Michelle Malkin | February 28, 2003

On March 1, the Immigration and Naturalization Service will officially cease to exist. But the same disastrous mix of political correctness and political cronyism that plagued INS will preside over the new "customer service" branch of the old agency.

Jonah Goldberg | February 28, 2003

On Feb. 23, as the United Nations was debating whether it should offer an 18th resolution saying that it was really serious that Iraq must disarm, The New York Times had the courage, the chutzpah, the cajones, to demand the one thing we really need: more debate.

Mona Charen | February 28, 2003

So just what is newsworthy about getting him to sit down for a one-on-one interview? Did the executives at CBS expect him to announce his hopes for a career in professional baseball? Did they suppose he'd hand over his weapons of mass destruction to Dan Rather personally?

Oliver North | February 28, 2003

For more than five months, President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair have tried vainly to drag the United Nations, kicking and screaming, back from the brink of irrelevance.

Debra J. Saunders | February 28, 2003

He used to be dismissed as Tony Blinton, a Clintonesque slave to polls and public opinion. Now British Prime Minister Tony Blair is taking heat for not bowing to public opinion and instead steadfastly supporting George W. Bush on possible war with Iraq.

Jacob Sullum | February 28, 2003

According to New York Gov. George Pataki, observant Jews in his state are caught in "suspended animation," unsure about which foods comport with their dietary rules.

Joel Mowbray | February 28, 2003

With the President’s tax cut now introduced in the House, the potential price tag of a House-modified package being bandied about by some insiders is an eye-popping one: $1 trillion

Rich Lowry | February 28, 2003

The phrase once conjured Manhattanites who championed the poor while getting chauffeured to dinner parties. Now the locus of limousine liberalism has shifted West, and the vehicle of choice has changed. Its new practitioners don't dare get caught in a limousine and, instead, ostentatiously drive the latest hybrid cars.

John McCaslin | February 28, 2003

"If he was a real American, he would have shot him." -- Radio talk-show host Don Imus, suggesting Tuesday that CBS News anchor Dan Rather missed a patriotic opportunity while conducting a rare interview with Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.

Bruce Bartlett | February 28, 2003

In recent days, there have been numerous press stories about doctors going on strike to protest high medical malpractice premiums. This is just the most obvious evidence that something is fundamentally wrong with the nation's tort liability system.

Charles Krauthammer | February 28, 2003

America goes courting Guinea, Cameroon and Angola in search of the nine Security Council votes necessary to pass our new resolution on Iraq.

Thu, Feb 27, 2003

Ann Coulter | February 27, 2003

After voting in favor of the war with Iraq right before the November elections, Sen. Hillary Clinton never had another kind word to say for the war. Just a few weeks ago, Sen. Clinton gave an interview on Irish TV in which she said she opposed precipitous action against Iraq. She said Bush should give the U.N. weapons inspectors more time.

Thomas Sowell | February 27, 2003

When critics point out the abysmal performances of schools in ghetto neighborhoods, teachers defend themselves by pointing out the disinterested, disruptive, and sometimes dangerous students they have to deal with.

Larry Elder | February 27, 2003

In Hollywood, apparently, celebrity equals expertise.

Cal Thomas | February 27, 2003

Under the old rules of debate, a spokesperson for one side of an issue would state a position and the opposing side would state its position. Rebuttals and surrebuttals would follow.

Suzanne Fields | February 27, 2003

Timing is everything, and luck is relative. We left Washington in a swirl of the first flakes of what would become the Blizzard of '03, embarking on a winter holiday with our extended family of 10.

Ben Shapiro | February 27, 2003

John Ashcroft's birthday is May 9. Somebody should buy him some earplugs, because the critics of the most effective attorney general in history never stop whining, crying or babbling.

Emmett Tyrrell | February 27, 2003

Time has been passing since Congress approved its genial bipartisan resolution on war with Iraq, and the Democrats' resolve for "regime change" in faraway Baghdad has declined with every tic of the clock.

Robert Novak | February 27, 2003

The Democratic filibuster against judicial nominee Miguel Estrada has little to do with the 41-year-old Honduran immigrant. It is part of a grand design to talk to death a succession of conservative judges selected by President Bush.

Ross Mackenzie | February 27, 2003

In many ways, Britain's Prime Minister Tony Blair has recalled no one quite so much as Bill Clinton - a leftie of dubious moral heft with a wife intellectually stranger still. Lately, his Winston Churchill side has emerged.

George Will | February 27, 2003

The president, preoccupied with regime change elsewhere, will occupy a substantially diminished presidency unless he defeats the current attempt to alter the constitutional regime here.

Alan Reynolds | February 27, 2003

Of all the illogical arguments against ending or easing the double-taxation of dividends, none is quite as ridiculous as those who claim the same tax treatment should be given to investments in which no double tax is involved.

Michelle Malkin | February 26, 2003

The reviews are in: Motown and Hollywood are head over heels for two men with unabashed penchants for young girls.

Walter E. Williams | February 26, 2003

Not all college students support racial preferences, and some UCLA students made their feelings known in a highly innovative way.

Brent Bozell | February 26, 2003

We know that liberals believe that in the grand march toward human perfection, we should be able to clone our way out of many medical ailments. But their faith in human potential is reaching laughable levels of utopianism if they think they can somehow clone the success of Rush Limbaugh.

Jonah Goldberg | February 26, 2003

A group of investors and liberal radio executives wants to turn Al Franken into the left's answer to Rush Limbaugh. To be fair, the backers in the venture don't want to mimic Limbaugh -not because that would be a bad thing, mind you, but because it's been tried before and didn't work.

David Limbaugh | February 26, 2003

Hemet High School in Hemet, Calif., is considering eliminating the traditional valedictorian award for the graduating senior with the highest grade point average. Otherwise, some delicate students may suffer a damaging blow to their self-esteem.

Tony Blankley | February 26, 2003

When those planes knocked down the World Trade Center towers they created world-political reverberations of which we are only beginning to take the measure.

Dennis Prager | February 26, 2003

The world's future is being decided at this time. Such moments are extremely rare in history. And when they have occurred, they have between two, not three, competing ideologies.

Pat Buchanan | February 26, 2003

In many Catholic colleges of yesterday, students had to take 24 course hours of philosophy as a condition of graduation.

Terry Jeffrey | February 26, 2003

On what may be the eve of a war with Iraq, the State Department is still issuing nonimmigrant visas allowing citizens of Iraq and other terror-sponsoring states to visit the United States.

Debra J. Saunders | February 26, 2003

Antiwar protesters bristled when The San Francisco Chronicle reported last week that a mere 65,000 protesters showed up at San Francisco's Feb. 16 antiwar protest.

Linda Chavez | February 26, 2003

Democrats don't really want to filibuster Miguel Estrada's nomination to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. They aren't anxious to stay up all night and give marathon speeches on the dangers Estrada purportedly poses to the Republic. Tom Daschle needs his beauty rest, after all.

Diana West | February 26, 2003

In a "rush to war" as interminable as this one, morale -- or lack thereof -- becomes an issue. Limbo is wearing. Tension is taxing.

Bill Murchison | February 26, 2003

The academicians and business executives and military leaders who want the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold race-conscious admissions policies at the University of Michigan, and are saying so in legal briefs, have what you might call a point.

Kathleen Parker | February 26, 2003

The Central Park Jogger's memoir, due to be published in April, has journalists once again debating the media's practice of protecting rape victims' identities.

John McCaslin | February 26, 2003

No need to wait for Saddam Hussein to relinquish power before rebuilding Iraq.

Armstrong Williams | February 26, 2003

In the early '90s, President Clinton staved off the economic collapse of North Korea by funneling food, economic aid and nuclear power reactors into the brutal Stalinist regime.

Mona Charen | February 25, 2003

I'm for war. I know I'm not supposed to say that. War is hell. War is unpredictable. War is evil. It is all those things. But war is sometimes better than the alternative.

Cal Thomas | February 25, 2003

The indictment of eight people on racketeering charges for allegedly financing and supporting homicide bombers in Israel is an important first step on a very long road.

Matt Towery | February 25, 2003

The way this week started for George W. Bush, he must have felt a lot like Murray's ill-fated character. The president seems mired in an endless repeat of half-hearted actions by Iraq, inconclusive statements by United Nations weapons inspectors, stall-ball language from members of the U.N. Security Council, and a Dow Jones industrial average that ping-pongs up and down without deciding whether to finally take off or decline.

Phyllis Schlafly | February 25, 2003

Senate Democrats still refuse to accept the results of the November 2002 election. They are trying to overturn it by blocking President George W. Bush's judicial nominees.

Rich Lowry | February 25, 2003

The only reason that the new Civil War epic "Gods and Generals" hasn't prompted outraged protests is because so few people are seeing it that a boycott would be pointless.

Bruce Bartlett | February 25, 2003

One of the most common complaints I have heard about President Bush's tax plan is that it is cutting revenues "permanently." With the federal government facing enormous long-term fiscal pressures resulting from the impending retirement of the Baby Boom generation, permanent tax cuts are irresponsible, we are repeatedly told.

Chuck Colson | February 25, 2003

It’s Black History Month—and in classrooms around the country, children have been learning about famous African Americans and their contributions to our culture. But there’s one thing most kids have not been learning about many of these famous men and women: their Christian faith.

Marvin Olasky | February 25, 2003

Last week's butcher's bill: Nearly 100 dead at a Rhode Island nightclub because an infantile band played with matches.

Jack Kemp | February 25, 2003

In 1981, Congress enacted the Kemp-Roth 25-percent-across-the-board tax rate reductions (aka the Reagan tax cuts), which made a significant improvement to the tax code and helped free the economy from "stagflation" (simultaneously rising inflation and unemployment).

Brent Bozell | February 24, 2003

Some 40 million people watched the finale of "Joe Millionaire." Another 20.4 million tuned in to "The Bachelorette." We're doomed.

Pat Buchanan | February 24, 2003

Aware that it was the alliance with France in 1778 that saved our Revolution, Washington did not oppose all alliances, just permanent ones. Jefferson, too, warned against "entangling alliances."

Suzanne Fields | February 24, 2003

Abraham Lincoln, who was not particularly religious, said he was often driven to his knees because he had nowhere else to go. George Washington, who asked his mother to pray over him on the eve of his first inaugural, could have employed George W. Bush's speechwriters.

Robert Novak | February 24, 2003

It is difficult to exaggerate the aggravation at the White House over Alan Greenspan's gratuitous shot at President Bush's tax cuts.

Kathleen Parker | February 24, 2003

Perhaps I'm missing something, but I have no emotional attachment whatsoever to my uterus. Of course, I've never attended a production of "The Vagina Monologues," either.

John Leo | February 24, 2003

Two rules of thumb for protest rallies: Always claim a crowd 200,000 or so larger than any reasonable estimate, and always insist that your demonstrators are all ordinary, stable middle-class folk.

Larry Kudlow | February 24, 2003

Do not let the fog of war obscure the international trade figures just published by the U.S. Commerce Department. The statistics may be drier than sand, but they reveal a fascinating tale of wartime politics and economics.

George Will | February 24, 2003

In Europe, anti-Semitism has been called the socialism of fools, which is confusing, because socialism is the socialism of fools.
