Mike Adams | August 01, 2004

We just think back to the promises we kept; the promise never to grow old and the promise never to stop laughing. And, above all, never to let old friendships die.

Debra J. Saunders | August 01, 2004

t the Democratic National Convention, the gulf between rhetoric and reality is breathtaking.

George Will | August 01, 2004

David Limbaugh | July 30, 2004

The Democratic National Convention might be one of the slickest orchestrated shams since President Clinton's Senate impeachment 'trial.'

Mona Charen | July 30, 2004

The answer is that the Democratic Party secures its base these days through a series of fables. The most potent of these is the Florida fable.

Neal Boortz | July 30, 2004

In Boston this week the delegates chose a candidate who is presenting a public image largely at odds with their own feelings on the major issues.

Oliver North | July 30, 2004

Ed Feulner | July 30, 2004

They believe that if they just had more money, their problems would vanish. But it seldom works out.

Jacob Sullum | July 30, 2004

How is it that the real guests don't realize the fake guests are fake?

Rich Tucker | July 30, 2004

We the voters must keep the pressure on. Congress should take action, or else explain why it isn?t acting.

Bruce Bartlett | July 30, 2004

The red meat speeches of Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy probably played well with many blue state voters, but so what?

Ross Mackenzie | July 29, 2004

Ever since he rose to the top of the pile of Democratic contenders for his party's presidential nomination, John Kerry has sought to "introduce" himself to the American electorate.

Robert Novak | July 29, 2004

In fact, this unity is an illusion, reflecting the transformation of national political conventions to infomercials.

John McCaslin | July 29, 2004

Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean can't comment on all the convention fussing and fighting surrounding left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore's anti-President Bush film 'Fahrenheit 9/11.'

George Will | July 29, 2004

Would Democrats loathe Bush much less if 9/11 and hence the Iraq War had never happened?

Wed, Jul 28, 2004

The theme of the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night is "A Stronger More Secure America," which will be capped off by a rousing speech from a renowned law-and-order Democrat: Al Sharpton. No joke.

Big Labor's ties to the Democratic Party aren't exactly helping working men and women.

Rebecca Hagelin | July 28, 2004

Thomas Sowell | July 27, 2004

Whatever the specific merits or demerits of the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission, re-organizing the whole intelligence operations of the United States in a few months before an election seems like quite a rush to judgment.

David Limbaugh | July 27, 2004

It will be interesting to see how much liberal red meat -- excuse the oxymoron -- John Kerry has the guts to throw at his Michael Moore-esque base at the Democratic National Convention this week.

Cal Thomas | July 27, 2004

Behind the party's smiling masks, though, is the traditional Democratic cynicism that says people can't do much for themselves without the help of government.

Armstrong Williams | July 27, 2004

So, how has the Democratic Party responded to the Iraq question? The answer is clear: It hasn't.

Rich Lowry | July 27, 2004

The union members here seem like liberals. The feminists seem like liberals. The black and Hispanic activists seem like liberals. But appearances can be deceiving, or so the Democrats hope to convince the public at their convention this week:

Larry Kudlow | July 27, 2004

That?s what Democratic politicians want you to believe right now: that the inmates may be on the convention floor, but they?ll never run the prison.

Mon, Jul 26, 2004

Ann Coulter | July 26, 2004

Here at the Spawn of Satan convention in Boston, conservatives are deploying a series of covert signals to identify one another, much like gay men do. My allies are the ones wearing crosses or American flags.
