Paul Jacob | September 12, 2004

Politicians love the people, at least for these couple of months during election years. The rest of the time they merely put up with us, spend our money, and try to cope with our love for term limits.

Four million evangelicals didn?t vote in the 2000 presidential election.

Kathleen Parker | September 11, 2004

Extreme reaction to comments Vice President Dick Cheney made about the importance of the Nov. 2 election is a textbook example of manufactured outrage, perhaps mixed with a little media bias and seasoned with a dash of hysteria.

Robert Novak | September 11, 2004

Friends of Secretary of State Colin Powell, who has been considered certain to leave government at year's end, say his future is undetermined and will remain so until he sits down for a chat with President Bush.

Thomas Sowell | September 10, 2004

Our current unemployment rate -- 5.4 percent -- is one of the lowest in the world and one of the lowest in our own history.

Brent Bozell | September 10, 2004

One thing you won't find on your TV is a commercial for cigarettes, and it's one of the few 'broadcasting' issues on which the federal government and Hollywood have common ground.

Jonah Goldberg | September 10, 2004

Today we're witnessing the same thing in reverse. A host of Democratic operatives, elder statesmen, consultants and pundits have launched a campaign that says in effect, 'Don't let Kerry be Kerry.'

Mike Adams | September 10, 2004

I?ll never forget the day that Ms. Derwin got sick just before our high school biology exam.

David Limbaugh | September 10, 2004

Vice President Dick Cheney should be applauded, not castigated, for his straight talk that the United States will be safer under a Bush administration than a Kerry administration.

Neal Boortz | September 10, 2004

Viewed in the context of the possible negative results of a decision, only the most partisan and disingenuous fool could suggest that President Bush?s choice to invade Iraq and remove Saddam Hussein from power was the wrong one.

Oliver North | September 10, 2004

Three years ago this week, 19 radical Islamic Jihadists seized four airplanes and killed 2,996 people in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Somerset County, Pa.

Jacob Sullum | September 10, 2004

When John F. Kerry declared that George W. Bush's middle initial "stands for 'wrong,'" the most commonly heard rejoinder was that the senator's middle initial must stand for 'flip-flopper.'

Ed Feulner | September 10, 2004

Back in 1906, Upton Sinclair shocked the world with 'The Jungle,' an unsettling depiction of conditions at a Chicago meatpacking plant.

Rich Tucker | September 10, 2004

Seconds after President Bush finished his lengthy Republican National Convention speech, journalists were firing back.

Larry Kudlow | September 10, 2004

Hawkish inflationism on Wall Street took a bath with the release of an anemic producer price report late this week.

Charles Krauthammer | September 10, 2004

The Republicans got a bounce out of their convention. The Democrats did not. Why? Elementary. The Republicans had something to say. The Democrats did not. Something always beats nothing.

Chuck Colson | September 10, 2004

Three years ago, four airplanes commandeered by terrorists were turned against our country, and we learned something about heroes.

Rich Lowry | September 10, 2004

It took 9/11 to revive a brutal version of that phenomenon: the 'unidentified remains.'

Thu, Sep 09, 2004

Ann Coulter | September 09, 2004

There's been a lot of weeping and gnashing of teeth among the Democrats since Vice President Cheney said if the country makes the wrong choice on Election Day, 'then the danger is that we'll get hit again and we'll be hit in a way that will be devastating from the standpoint of the United States.'

Thomas Sowell | September 09, 2004

It is obviously completely misleading to discuss how many jobs American companies are sending to other countries without even mentioning how many jobs foreign countries are outsourcing to Americans.

Larry Elder | September 09, 2004

Why did the Republicans get a "bounce" after their convention, while the Democrats did not?

Mike Adams | September 09, 2004

Just when I thought I had seen it all, I realized I haven?t. I hope you?ll pardon my deflated tone as the realization came just a few minutes ago.

Terry Jeffrey | September 09, 2004

Leaving aside its marginal annual fluctuation up or down, the massive number of people arrested at our southern border in each year since 9/11 means we are still sending an unmistakable message to the world:

Emmett Tyrrell | September 09, 2004

Word that Bill Clinton was headed to the hospital for bypass surgery must have caught a lot of 1960s youth -- as the phrase had it -- off guard.

Rebecca Hagelin | September 09, 2004

The wild popularity of his column sends the best news his way via some 1,000 e-mails a day from his eyes and ears in Washington and beyond.

Marvin Olasky | September 09, 2004

Istanbul's 20,000 Jews, by continuing in worship, may be of tougher stuff than those Spaniards who voted for appeasement when terrorists struck in Madrid -- but Jewish leaders here are also realistic.

Ross Mackenzie | September 09, 2004

Since John Kerry's nomination for President, he has taken a bath in the polls. August was awful for him and thus far September is worse.

Armstrong Williams | September 09, 2004

I explain to her how liberalism has not solved our most basic problems. Instead, it has put us in the mindset that we have to be fed government programs, instead of being given access to capital and the opportunity to create our own jobs.

Larry Kudlow | September 09, 2004

Norman Podhoretz, longtime editor-in-chief of Commentary and one of the founding fathers of neoconservatism, has penned an important essay titled, 'World War IV and How to Win It.'

Michelle Malkin | September 08, 2004

Contrast the media whitewashing of our Islamofascist enemies with the press coverage of the Waco, Texas, siege in 1993.

Walter E. Williams | September 08, 2004

What are we to make of politicians, and other charlatans and quacks, who are knowingly dishonest and use the politics of envy to exploit American ignorance for political gain?

Brent Bozell | September 08, 2004

It was a sign of the venom that was set to drip from the fangs of the liberal media in New York during the Republican convention last week.

Jonah Goldberg | September 08, 2004

Why won't these dumb Americans vote Democratic?

Tony Blankley | September 08, 2004

Cal Thomas | September 08, 2004

Following the massacre by mostly Muslim terrorists in Beslan, Russia, that killed, at last count, 338 people, including at least 156 children, and wounded hundreds of others, a rare voice of reason was heard from an unlikely place.

Suzanne Fields | September 08, 2004

Since 9/11, the stakes are new and different, and issues of foreign policy, once the preserve of policy wonks, can't be separated from how we raise our children.

Ben Shapiro | September 08, 2004

After President Bush's terrific speech at the Republican National Convention, John F. Kerry decided he wasn't the type to take a piece of political shrapnel in the rear without fighting back.

Linda Chavez | September 08, 2004

Universal health insurance, free prescription drugs and a higher minimum wage simply don't measure up as voting issues when the nation's security and our citizens' lives are at risk.

Kathleen Parker | September 08, 2004

We've all had days like the month Kerry is enduring. You know, those days when you dig a small hole with an ill-placed comment and pretty soon you're watching sunrise over Beijing.

Mike Adams | September 07, 2004

Recently, a reader wrote to tell me that he had lost all faith in my intelligence because I made a derogatory remark about Charles Darwin in one of my recent editorials.

Star Parker | September 07, 2004

It is not enough for government to allow African-Americans to put a toe into the pool of ownership and choice. We need government to get out of the way and let us dive in.

David Limbaugh | September 07, 2004

Let me give you a few examples concerning the media's take on who drew first blood, President Bush or Sen. Kerry.

Cal Thomas | September 07, 2004

It is George W. Bush's 'vision thing,' and it is a vision that, if it comes true, can potentially liberate more people than the millions already set free by America in the last century and the first four years of this one.

Dennis Prager | September 07, 2004

Having targeted little children for death, there is no atrocity, no barbarity, no act of evil that the human race cannot imagine fanatical Muslims committing.

John McCaslin | September 07, 2004

More than anything else, "Doc" made people smile.

George Will | September 07, 2004

Congratulations: Your child is bilingual. He or she speaks SportsCenterese, the 'lingua franca' of ESPN nation, the capital of which is Bristol, Conn.

Bruce Bartlett | September 07, 2004

Having now sat through both the Republican and Democratic conventions, I have come to two conclusions.

Armstrong Williams | September 07, 2004

John Kerry casts himself with great force into a role. On Monday Kerry is a brave Vietnam vet who speaks about his time in the trenches in calm gravitas.

Jack Kemp | September 07, 2004

Although the full shape of his vision has yet to be fleshed out, the president presented a comprehensive agenda for creating an ownership society.

Mon, Sep 06, 2004

Michael Barone | September 06, 2004

When I was in the political polling business, my boss, Peter Hart, used to say, 'He who frames the issues tends to determine the outcome of the election.'

Suzanne Fields | September 06, 2004

Republicans, like most grown-ups, understand that there was a time to be young and irresponsible. That time has come and gone, but you don't have to apologize for remembering.

Diana West | September 06, 2004

It all started when Iraqi interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi said, "I told you so," sort of, after two French journalists were kidnapped.

Robert Novak | September 06, 2004

The soaring confidence that George W. Bush's political team takes into the final eight weeks of the campaign stems from more than belief its candidate is a vastly underestimated politician.

Sun, Sep 05, 2004

Paul Jacob | September 05, 2004

For a while there the presidential race seemed pleasantly nostalgic. We read about where the Kerry bus stopped, where Bush spoke, which towns the two almost met in. You felt like breaking out the apple pie and singing a few patriotic anthems.
