Paul Jacob | February 08, 2004

The fact is the FCC has not, will not and cannot save us, or our children, from violent and sexually inappropriate images, crude language or a steady stream of immorality on radio and television.

George Will | February 08, 2004

After this winter of his discontent, the president needs Spring Training. He is far from midseason form, and his accumulating errors are undermining the premise of his re-election campaign.

Larry Kudlow | February 08, 2004

Happy birthday, Mr. President -- that's President Ronald Reagan, who turned 93 on Friday.

John Leo | February 08, 2004

An actual debate on the merits of racial preferences has taken place on an American campus, Utah State University. Whether the Guinness World Records book is interested in this news is not certain.

Doug Giles | February 07, 2004

If you?re a conservative; if you drive a sperm whale size SUV; if you voted for George W. Bush in the last election; and if you supported the war in Iraq ? then, according to the media elite, you?re Beavis.

Rich Tucker | February 07, 2004

There?s one topic that seems likely to overshadow all others this presidential election year -- our policy toward Iraq.

Maggie Gallagher | February 07, 2004

Seniors are mad that they have to pay more for drugs than Canadians do. Conservatives are mad that President Bush's new prescription drug plan will cost $100 billion more than he said it would...

Kathleen Parker | February 07, 2004

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court may have just handed the November election to George W. Bush.

Robert Novak | February 07, 2004

High-ranking advisers to Sen. John Kerry privately say Sen. John Edwards has to be considered the top candidate for vice president on a Kerry-led ticket.

Thomas Sowell | February 06, 2004

Once, after giving a talk, I was confronted by a lady in the audience who asked what some people regard as the ultimate question...

Brent Bozell | February 06, 2004

The dominance of Fox News in the cable news ratings -- and what liberals see as its annoying tendency to cover topics and angles that they believe should be buried for the good of liberalism -- has led to a great amount of Fox-hating in the anything-but-"mainstream" press.

Jonah Goldberg | February 06, 2004

All of the Democratic presidential candidates insist as a matter of bedrock faith that George W. Bush is "dividing America" like never before.

David Limbaugh | February 06, 2004

It almost seems that someone is playing a cosmic joke on the Democrats who have placed all their eggs in Kerry's basket because they think he's electable when he may not be the most electable of the lot.

Mona Charen | February 06, 2004

The apologies are flowing like water now. Janet Jackson (identical twin sister of Michael?) has declared that she "is really sorry if I offended anyone. That was truly not my intention."

Oliver North | February 06, 2004

Though our victory was secured without a cataclysmic nuclear exchange with the Soviet Union, it took a terrible toll on American lives, limbs and treasure.

Jacob Sullum | February 06, 2004

Forget about the urine-soaked crucifix and the guy with the bullwhip protruding from his posterior. The National Endowment for the Arts was never mainly about funding the deliberate provocations of avant-garde artists.

Ross Mackenzie | February 06, 2004

With Teddy Kennedy, Paul Tsongas and Michael Dukakis, John Kerry is the fourth Massachusetts pol to seek the presidency since 1980.

John McCaslin | February 06, 2004

Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) makes a good point in proposing that the presidential nominating process be turned over to the National Football League.

Bruce Bartlett | February 06, 2004

The addition of an expensive new unfunded benefit to Medicare for prescription drugs means that future spending will be much, much greater than projected.

Charles Krauthammer | February 06, 2004

With John Kerry as their presumptive candidate, the Democrats may have won the war issue.

Marvin Olasky | February 06, 2004

Today, Feb. 6, Ronald Reagan will turn 93. Liberal reporters, some still gnashing their teeth, will note the event.

Thu, Feb 05, 2004

Larry Elder | February 05, 2004

Can one make the case that President George W. Bush "lied" or "misled" or intentionally "mischaracterized" the intelligence on Iraq and WMD in order to lead us to war?

Suzanne Fields | February 05, 2004

As entertainers push the envelope in search of "edgy," children lose the ability to discriminate between right and wrong, good and bad. The popular culture becomes the arbiter of taste and morality.

Emmett Tyrrell | February 05, 2004

The week has witnessed the departure from the Democratic presidential race of the party's last authentic man competing for the nomination, Sen. Joe Lieberman.

Alan Reynolds | February 05, 2004

Democratic presidential candidates advocating really humungous tax increases -- Howard Dean, Joe Lieberman and Gen. Clark -- appear to have lost ground to two favoring merely enormous tax increases, John Kerry and John Edwards.

Robert Novak | February 05, 2004

Sen. John Kerry's extraordinary feat of winning seven out of the first nine tests in this year's race for the Democratic presidential nomination is mitigated by his one big loss.

George Will | February 05, 2004

Kerry notes that if Gore had carried New Hampshire, he would have become president without a single Southern electoral vote.

Larry Kudlow | February 05, 2004

Why then is everyone suggesting that 4 percent GDP -- the just-released mark for last year's fourth quarter -- represents an economic slowdown? It's all blather.

Rich Lowry | February 05, 2004

As his campaign rolls on, Sen. John Kerry sat down the other day for a brief interview about the issues.

Chuck Colson | February 05, 2004

At the annual meeting of the Episcopal Church's Diocese of Virginia, Bishop Peter James Lee made a startling pronouncement, one that reflects on us all.

Wed, Feb 04, 2004

Thomas Sowell | February 04, 2004

A new study shows that you need an income of about $104,000 to buy an average home on the San Francisco peninsula with a 20 percent down payment.

Michelle Malkin | February 04, 2004

Why on earth should we vaccinate our newborn baby against Hepatitis B -- a virus that is contracted mostly through intravenous drug use and sexual contact?

Walter E. Williams | February 04, 2004

There's the "Free Trade but Fair Trade" crowd, and the "Level Playing Field" crowd, and the "America First" crowd, all calling for tariffs and other international trade restrictions.

Brent Bozell | February 04, 2004

Sports are supposed to remain an inspirational oasis in our culture, a place where merit and performance, and even dazzling feats of prowess grab our attention.

Star Parker | February 04, 2004

February is black history month. Last year it was celebrated by Jesse Jackson shaking down Nissan for an advertising campaign in which "history" was crossed out in "black history" and "future" written in above.

Jonah Goldberg | February 04, 2004

I don't know who's to blame for "Boobgate" - and I'm not referring to Howard Dean's ability to spend $40 million just to lose a series of primaries pretty badly.

Tony Blankley | February 04, 2004

The maximum danger to America is not from terrorists but from terrorists using weapons of mass destruction. Al Qaeda's murderous assault of September 11 was appalling.

Ben Shapiro | February 04, 2004

Ouch. I got the bill for this quarter at the University of California-Los Angeles on Monday. It was ugly. With the budget crisis in California, tuition has been raised.

Terry Jeffrey | February 04, 2004

President Bush should insist that his commission investigating the performance of U.S. intelligence agencies answer this question: What did we know about Saddam's weather balloon program, and when did we know it?

Linda Chavez | February 04, 2004

Howard Dean stepped into the culture wars this week by proclaiming as "silly" a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) investigation of the on-air smut that passed for halftime entertainment at this year's Super Bowl.

Rebecca Hagelin | February 04, 2004

There we were, my precious 11-year-old daughter and I, curled up on the couch, anxiously awaiting the Super Bowl halftime extravaganza. Let's be clear about this: We weren't watching the game ? not a single minute of it. Nope, we were having a girls' fun night running back and forth between decorating her room and trying to catch the much-awaited halftime spectacle. And boy, what a spectacle it was. Janet "Flashing" Jackson and all.

Kathleen Parker | February 04, 2004

Now we know why Michael Jackson throws towels and veils over his children's heads. His sister, Janet, might be on TV.

Thomas Sowell | February 03, 2004

This election year we are sure to hear a lot about "special interests." Candidates of both major parties, as well as candidates of third or fourth parties, are sure to denounce special interests both hotly and repeatedly.

David Limbaugh | February 03, 2004

In light of weapons inspector David Kay's recent statements, it is mystifying to me that President Bush and Republicans aren't claiming vindication and challenging Democrats for exploiting the issue. Some observations about this...

Dennis Prager | February 03, 2004

This past weekend, President Bush and I were the two main speakers -- I on Friday, he on Saturday -- in Philadelphia at the annual meeting of Republican senators and congressmen sponsored by the Congressional Institute. I relate my own participation for two reasons.

Matt Towery | February 03, 2004

Let's take a well-deserved break from presidential politics and instead look at the early public reaction to Sunday's Super Bowl halftime antics.

Bill Murchison | February 03, 2004

It's another of those ex malo bonum moments -- the kind when, piecing together recollections of high school Latin, you reflect that "out of bad, good may come."

John McCaslin | February 03, 2004

New York-based reporter and pundit John Podhoretz said George W. Bush is perhaps the most personally conservative individual to hold the presidency in modern times.

Bruce Bartlett | February 03, 2004

Outsourcing of information technology services continues to be a hot topic -- and a sore point for many IT professionals.

Mon, Feb 02, 2004

Mike Adams | February 02, 2004

Ever since I became a columnist, people have been asking me to explain exactly how I abandoned atheism. I think it would be better to talk about how I could have avoided it.

Cal Thomas | February 02, 2004

Maybe it's appropriate that Super Bowls are numbered with Roman numerals. Sunday's, Super Bowl XXXVIII, featured a halftime show that could have served as backdrop for one of Caligula's orgies.

Suzanne Fields | February 02, 2004

Only six decades ago, the world gasped in horror at the grim handiwork of man's inhumanity to man with the liberation of Auschwitz.

Diana West | February 02, 2004

Welcome to the ugliest, nastiest policy scrum Americans have ever had to referee in a presidential election year.

Phyllis Schlafly | February 02, 2004

Finally, we have a president who comes right out and targets "activist judges" as the enemy of traditional values and urges us to use "the constitutional process" to remedy the problem.

John Leo | February 02, 2004

David Kay?s exit interview was odd. In resigning as chief U.S. weapons inspector in Iraq, he made news.

Jack Kemp | February 02, 2004

It wasn't until Reagan offered a way out of the austerity box that Republicans regained their political footing and the economy recovered from a decade of stagnation.

Robert Novak | February 02, 2004

The Republican high command ought to be ecstatic over John Kerry's ascent toward the Democratic presidential nomination.

William F. Buckley | February 02, 2004

Britons and Americans wept copiously in mid-week. It appeared almost as if there had been collusion to save the reputations of Tony Blair and George Bush.

Rich Lowry | February 02, 2004

Oops, they did it again. Appeasing the elderly vote by adding a prescription-drug benefit to Medicare will cost one-third more than the Bush administration said.

Sun, Feb 01, 2004

Paul Jacob | February 01, 2004

Gravediggers have a maxim that every politician should ponder: Never dig a hole deeper than you can climb out of.

Ed Feulner | February 01, 2004

There?s one important job it?s supposed to be doing: Protecting us from foreign threats. That?s why we should give credit where it is due.

George Will | February 01, 2004

2004 may secure the ascendancy of one of two radically different ideas of the proper role of government and the individual's proper relationship to it.
