Paul Jacob | December 28, 2003

let’s hope one frightening fantasy conjured up by Representative Charles Rangel of New York, Senator Fritz Hollings of South Carolina and David Broder of the Washington Post never becomes a reality.

George Will | December 28, 2003

Because Dean's foreign policy pronouncements have been curiouser and curiouser, his recent domestic policy speech did not get the attention it deserved for its assertion that America is boiling with ``anger and despair.''

Mona Charen | December 27, 2003

Today's column is desultory. Kindly indulge me. I have Howard Dean and Time magazine on my mind.

Robert Novak | December 27, 2003

When Vice President Dick Cheney was asked in a recent taped television interview what has "best prepared you for where you are now," he quickly replied that it was working for Gerald Ford and Donald Rumsfeld.

Bruce Bartlett | December 27, 2003

Last year at this time, I noted the growing phenomenon of "blogs" on the Internet. Blog is short for web log, a site or page established by one or more individuals to comment on the issues of the day or whatever else they choose to write about.

Larry Kudlow | December 27, 2003

Corporate profits are the mother's milk of business. Rising profits lead to business expansion, and falling profits lead to business recession.

Thomas Sowell | December 26, 2003

In a hugely complex world, there is no way for the average person -- or any person, for that matter -- to be knowledgeable about even half the things that affect their lives.

Larry Elder | December 26, 2003

Work hard, get an education, learn a trade, and don't make bad moral mistakes, he always told us. Don't blame others, and "the sky is wide open" if one only sees the opportunities.

Jonah Goldberg | December 26, 2003

You may recall that a mere 72 hours after Saddam was captured alive, the president of the United States gave an exclusive interview to Diane Sawyer. Big news, big guest.

Oliver North | December 26, 2003

Yes, it's that time again -- the time of year you've all been waiting for. Ollie Claus has made his list, he's checked it twice and, believe me, he knows who's been naughty and nice.

Emmett Tyrrell | December 26, 2003

In keeping with many American journalists' evasion of meaning, Time magazine has given its "Person of the Year" not to a person but to a group of persons, or is it to a person who has no name?

Charles Krauthammer | December 26, 2003

As Jay Leno would say, what are the odds? The nine months of negotiations with Libya perfectly frame the war on Iraq and the fall of Saddam. How is it possible to ignore the most blindingly obvious collateral benefits?

Ann Coulter | December 25, 2003

It's the blue states that are constantly sending lawyers to the red states to bother everyone. Americans in the red states look at a place like New York City – where, this year, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade featured a gay transvestite as Mrs. Claus – and say, Well, I guess some people like it, but it's not for me.

Suzanne Fields | December 25, 2003

This is the week for giving, receiving, eating and drinking, nearly always to excess. Some of us celebrate Chanukah and others Christmas, but we're united in the common purpose of gluttony.

Maggie Gallagher | December 25, 2003

The document is dripping with contempt for democracy and decency.

Ross Mackenzie | December 25, 2003

This is the time for celebrating a birth. Births are commonplace. They happen every day, every hour, every minute. But this particular birth, this particular Child, changed the course of history more than any other.

Marvin Olasky | December 25, 2003

On Christmas, along with remembering how God came to earth, we might also read these words in Psalm 92: 'How great are your works, O Lord! Your thoughts are very deep! The stupid man cannot know.'

Alan Reynolds | December 25, 2003

It is a familiar complaint that newspapers only report the bad news. But that applies to economic news, too -- particularly with a presidential year coming up.

Robert Novak | December 25, 2003

As Republican Rep. Ralph Regula of Ohio stepped off the House floor Dec. 8, he should have been happy.

George Will | December 25, 2003

His goal, 220 years ago, was to sleep Christmas Eve in his 6-foot 6-inch bed at his Virginia home on the bank of the Potomac. It would be nicer than some other recent Christmas Eves.

Thomas Sowell | December 24, 2003

Those who rail against profits and "greed" seldom stop to think through what they are saying, much less go check the facts.

Michelle Malkin | December 24, 2003

This is a Christmas message for every mother in crisis who has abandoned a baby -- a tiny bundle delivered in secret, stashed away in shame, and disposed of somewhere, anywhere, to survive or die alone.

Walter E. Williams | December 24, 2003

A fortnight ago, in "Let's Do Some Detective Work," I provided unassailable evidence that Congress had vastly exceeded powers delegated to it by our Constitution.

Brent Bozell | December 24, 2003

Fifty years from now, schoolchildren may learn that 2003 was the year President Bush liberated Iraq, creating a prosperous powerhouse of democratic capitalism in the Middle East.

Jonah Goldberg | December 24, 2003

It's probably a bit risky to declare this amidst an "orange alert," but I think the events of December signal that it's time to declare President Bush's foreign policy a huge success.

Tony Blankley | December 24, 2003

Recent events have been hopeful: Saddam captured, Libya conciliatory, Iran open to nuclear inspection, Saudi Arabia somewhat more helpful, Syria seizing millions of Al Qaeda funds.

Terry Jeffrey | December 24, 2003

While many graduates of the U.S. Naval Academy have spent 2003 defending our nation in Iraq, in Afghanistan or on ships at sea, lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union have been plotting an act of cultural terrorism against the Navy here at home.

Ben Shapiro | December 24, 2003

American Jews should celebrate the existence of Christmas. We should feel joy when Christmas comes around, and not just because American Christianity is tolerant.

Linda Chavez | December 24, 2003

The more I think about it, the more in awe I am of what happened some 2,000 years ago, how the birth of a single Child transformed the world.

Rebecca Hagelin | December 24, 2003

As Americans across the country celebrate Christmas this week, the reasons for celebrating are numerous.

Thomas Sowell | December 23, 2003

Profits are certainly without honor among the intelligentsia. The very word produces negative reactions, even from people who cannot give you a single reason why money carrying that label is worse than money called by other names.

David Limbaugh | December 23, 2003

The recent attacks by Congressman Richard Gephardt against fellow Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean underscore how difficult a position Democrats are in going into the 2004 election.

Cal Thomas | December 23, 2003

According to a New York Times/CBS News poll (Dec. 21), there is widespread support for a proposed constitutional amendment that would preserve marriage as a unique relational contract between a man and a woman.

Dennis Prager | December 23, 2003

Making New Year's resolutions is a great idea. Even if we violate them before February, it is good to resolve to improve one's life. It is far better to try and to fail than never to try.

Matt Towery | December 23, 2003

Will Howard Dean become the next president as Jimmy Carter did in 1976, or will he lose big like Michael Dukakis in 1988? The answer may lie in whether George W. Bush becomes more like Ronald Reagan in 1984.

Bill Murchison | December 23, 2003

The stumbles along the way, the falls, the catastrophes, would remind them of the human mess over which the angels hovered on that silent night: not in approval or confirmation, rather, in love of the wayward humans into whose midst a savior had come.

Bruce Bartlett | December 23, 2003

Many readers too young to remember the era in which he had his greatest influence were probably left wondering why so many people thought he was an important person.

John McCaslin | December 23, 2003

Before he leaves Washington to celebrate Christmas and usher in Election Year 2004, the White House issued three successive statements from President Bush:

Armstrong Williams | December 23, 2003

I love December. Snow piled high on pine branches, folks recalling the sacrifices of our Lord, neon "Christmas sale" signs decorating the countryside. The scene is both glorious and manipulative to its core.

Mon, Dec 22, 2003

Cal Thomas | December 22, 2003

First Saddam Hussein falls to the Bush Doctrine, and now Libya's dictator, Moammar Kadafi, buckling under pressure, announces he will give up his efforts (and they were considerable) to develop weapons of mass destruction.

Suzanne Fields | December 22, 2003

'Tis the season to be charitable. It's a moral mandate for families with big bucks, who look for worthy objects of their philanthropy at the end of the year. It's a way to reward causes dear to their hearts and minds.

Phyllis Schlafly | December 22, 2003

How many legs does a dog have if you call its tail a leg? That familiar fable, often attributed to President Abraham Lincoln, comes to mind when contemplating the redefinition of marriage by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court.

Jack Kemp | December 22, 2003

The year 2003 will be remembered as a year of war and conflict, and it will be measured as a turning point in the war on terrorism.

Ross Mackenzie | December 22, 2003

A raft of items worthy of comment in the year's end news...

Robert Novak | December 22, 2003

Howard Dean is close to clinching the nomination. The question is not merely whether he can be stopped but also whether he should be stopped.

Rich Lowry | December 22, 2003

The occasion for such effusion is "The Return of the King," the third installment of the movie adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings." It is (with apologies to "Elf" and "Bad Santa") a perfect Christmas movie.

Paul Jacob | December 21, 2003

We need to get rid of Santa Claus. Oh, sure, he does bring us presents. But, what I am supposed to do with an ethanol subsidy or a bridge project for Christmas, for heaven’s sake?! I can’t use stuff like that and it won’t fit under the tree.

John Leo | December 21, 2003

How goes the annual battle to delete Christmas from schools and the public square? News is mixed, but on the whole, things are not going well for the Grinches.

Armstrong Williams | December 21, 2003

There is something any reporter knows about President Bush and Vice President Cheney: They don't answer hypotheticals.
