Paul Jacob | October 10, 2004

No matter who wins the presidency, we've already lost the Congress.

George Will | October 10, 2004

Conservatism's 40-year climb to dominance receives an examination worthy of its complexity in ``The Right Nation,'' the best political book in years.

Doug Giles | October 09, 2004

Well, thank God Bush didn?t make any more truthful faces during the second debate and instead played nice guy for the swing vote sheeple who need that from their wartime President.

Robert Novak | October 09, 2004

A wide-ranging tax bill given up for dead by Washington's corporate lobbyists was revived largely because of the bipartisan ethanol bloc, including Senate Democratic Leader Tom Daschle.

Fri, Oct 08, 2004

Jonah Goldberg | October 08, 2004

Considering that the Kerry campaign claims their man has voted 600 times to cut taxes, there's good reason to doubt the challenger's counting skills.

David Limbaugh | October 08, 2004

Here we go again. Yet another earth-shattering report that Saddam Hussein, after all, did not possess stockpiles of WMD immediately prior to the American invasion of Iraq.

Oliver North | October 08, 2004

To listen to John Kerry explain his position(s) on Iraq is to submit oneself to mental torture.

Debra J. Saunders | October 08, 2004

The contrast could not be clearer. One side proposed a war and waged it.

Rebecca Hagelin | October 08, 2004

The dark images of Enron and disturbing headlines of other dirty dealings by the unethical chieftains of some big businesses in recent years set America on a course of holding corporate executives accountable for the money they control. But what about the chieftains of Big Labor?

Chuck Colson | October 08, 2004

Surveys indicate that young people?s interest in voting this year is the highest it has been since eighteen-year-olds were given the right to vote in 1972.

Kathleen Parker | October 08, 2004

One of the oddest pieces of the season's presidential race has been the issue of stem-cell research, often presented as a conflict between ignorant religious nuts and brilliant science martyrs.

Bruce Bartlett | October 08, 2004

When Republicans took control of Congress in 1994, it was widely hailed as a revolution.

Charles Krauthammer | October 08, 2004

Do the bad guys -- the terrorists in their Afghan caves and Iraqi redoubts -- want George Bush defeated in this election?

Rich Lowry | October 08, 2004

When we had Osama bin Laden, we let him walk away. That is the criticism that John Kerry and John Edwards have repeatedly leveled at the Bush administration, with -- amazingly -- not one word of rebuttal from President Bush or Vice President Dick Cheney during the first two debates.

John McCaslin | October 08, 2004

Not often does a student newspaper score an exclusive interview with a member of the first family, but a Hagerstown, Md., high school journalist got President Bush's sister on the record.

Thu, Oct 07, 2004

Ann Coulter | October 07, 2004

After Dick Cheney had beaten Edwards about the head for a while during the debate, Edwards waved his girlish hands and said: "There are 60 countries who have members of al-Qaida in them. How many of those countries are we going to invade?"

Thomas Sowell | October 07, 2004

Every election year there are great alarms in the media that not enough Americans vote.

Larry Elder | October 07, 2004

Polls show President Bush lost the first debate against Democratic presidential contender John Kerry. Why? Bush failed to respond to Kerry's assertions.

Cal Thomas | October 07, 2004

It wasn't the kind of line Sen. Lloyd Bentsen used on Dan Quayle in the 1988 vice presidential debate, but it was close.

Suzanne Fields | October 07, 2004

It's not news to stop anyone's press that if Old Europe could vote, John Kerry would win in a landslide.

Emmett Tyrrell | October 07, 2004

As the decades have passed, debate has lost its popularity on campuses and in public forums, possibly because Buckley and his understudies fared so well.

Marvin Olasky | October 07, 2004

John Kerry, like the Supreme Court in 1973, is doing what centuries of prelates could not and would not do: uniting millions of Protestants and Catholics.

Alan Reynolds | October 07, 2004

The vice presidential debate was quickly followed by the usual fascination with style ('Nice Guy vs. The Ice Guy,' said USA Today) and the equally customary lack of interest in facts.

Joel Mowbray | October 07, 2004

With both men outdoing the performances of their respective better halves from last Thursday, Dick Cheney and John Edwards largely battled to a draw in an underwhelming debate last night.

George Will | October 07, 2004

He has a multifaceted agenda for weakening crucial components of the Democratic Party, factions that depend on cosseting by the federal government. Consider trial lawyers and organized labor.

Robert Novak | October 07, 2004

Nobody from the administration has officially rejected my column. Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld, in his usual teasing of words, says pretty much what I did.

Ross Mackenzie | October 07, 2004

Dick Cheney's solidity and steadiness mark him as the Bushie the left most loves to hate.

Wed, Oct 06, 2004

Michelle Malkin | October 06, 2004

I don't care about his alleged weakness at the podium. What concerns me more than anything else is his demonstrated weakness at our borders.

Walter E. Williams | October 06, 2004

Benedict College in Columbia, S.C., enforces an academic policy that defies belief.

Jonah Goldberg | October 06, 2004

John Kerry is supposed to be the man of nuance. But he can't seem to grasp the implications of his boldest foreign policy statement in last week's presidential debate.

Tony Blankley | October 06, 2004

If you think the last three years have been rough, just wait a few months.

Terry Jeffrey | October 06, 2004

After his largely stylistic victory in the presidential debate on foreign policy, John Kerry inadvertently reminded Americans of an imminent domestic threat to our system of government.

Ben Shapiro | October 06, 2004

With the topics of debate now moving to domestic policy, it's time for President Bush to take out the biggest unused political weapon of this election cycle.

Linda Chavez | October 06, 2004

It was the defining moment of the vice-presidential debate: CEO Dick Cheney took the upstart junior exec John Edwards to the woodshed.

Rich Tucker | October 06, 2004

It?s probably no coincidence that, on the day of the vice presidential debate, comedian Rodney Dangerfield died.

Kathleen Parker | October 06, 2004

The latest fear factor being injected into the presidential election equation is a ghost from our past - the military draft.

Tue, Oct 05, 2004

Mike Adams | October 05, 2004

I am sure you would agree that American citizens should be treated with the same respect that we give to captured terrorists.

Star Parker | October 05, 2004

It is my experience that when a problem appears to have no solution it means that we are asking the wrong questions.

David Limbaugh | October 05, 2004

It appears that Senator Kerry has stopped his bleeding for now and even opened a couple of wounds on President Bush... What now?

Tony Blankley | October 05, 2004

There was quite an interesting debate reported in the media last week. No, not that one.

Dennis Prager | October 05, 2004

This column, which could be titled, 'Whatever your position on Iraq, John Kerry is your man,' is dedicated to Sean...

Maggie Gallagher | October 05, 2004

Here's the latest snapshot of the horse race:

Larry Kudlow | October 05, 2004

Without question, Bush?s bad-hair night in Miami last week has cost him in the polls. His lead is shrinking -- but he still has a lead.

Bruce Bartlett | October 05, 2004

We all know more than we want to about his service in Vietnam, but very little about what he has done between then and now. In particular, his 20-year Senate career is a blank.

Armstrong Williams | October 05, 2004

Black groupthink and the pseudo leaders that tout it are destroying the black community.

John McCaslin | October 05, 2004

'It's about national security.' So write the editors of the Lowell Sun, who read Sen. John Kerry as well as anyone.

Jack Kemp | October 05, 2004

I agree with Bill Bennett's description of the first presidential debate on Sept. 30, which centered on foreign policy, the war in Iraq and the war on terrorism:

Chuck Colson | October 05, 2004

It?s very difficult to find anything merciful about what Dutch doctors are doing to children and infants.

William F. Buckley | October 05, 2004

It seems curious that back in March 2003, we tried to kill Saddam Hussein.

Mon, Oct 04, 2004

Michael Barone | October 04, 2004

Back in the primary season, one of John Kerry's press aides was challenged by a reporter who characterized Kerry's stand on Iraq as 'ambivalent.'

Cal Thomas | October 04, 2004

I have known him since he was born and now this baby-child-boy-man is going off to war.

Suzanne Fields | October 04, 2004

October dawns bright and blue across the land, just as the poet (Helen Hunt Jackson) said it would.

Phyllis Schlafly | October 04, 2004

Democrat Sen. John Kerry's presidential campaign is squealing like a stuck pig about Republican mailings in the swing states of Arkansas and West Virginia. Kerry must win one of those states to win in November.

Frank Gaffney | October 04, 2004

In last Thursday?s debate, the two presidential candidates were asked what represented 'the single most serious threat to the national security of the United States.'

John Leo | October 04, 2004

A lopsided reaction like this indicates a huge amount of antipress animosity, while here in Manhattan news circles the Rather incident is regarded as a simple mistake and not a very important one at that.

Robert Novak | October 04, 2004

Depression among Democrats had reached new depths when the presidential candidates faced off Thursday night at the University of Miami. An hour and a half later, they were elated that John Kerry's candidacy had been saved.

Ross Mackenzie | October 04, 2004

My old debate and public speaking teacher, the late Rollin Osterweis, would have judged this year's first presidential debate - perhaps with an edge to President Bush.

Rich Lowry | October 04, 2004

President Bush supporters are left thinking about the debate that wasn't. It might have gone something like this, with John Kerry's remarks in quotes and those of some mythological incumbent president following:

Joel Mowbray | October 04, 2004

With Kerry?s camp relentlessly dampening expectations for the Democrat?s debating skills, the senator from Massachussets cleared the low bar he needed to in order to improve his standing in the public?s mind.

Sun, Oct 03, 2004

Mike Adams | October 03, 2004

Recently, some students complained to me that the computer labs had run out of paper on just the second day of the semester here at UNC-Wilmington.

Cal Thomas | October 03, 2004

Sen. John Kerry, though behind in the polls before the debate, remains within striking distance and viable for the next two debate nights and the election based largely on his superior speaking skills.

Debra J. Saunders | October 03, 2004

I'll concede that style counts. It was fair game for critics to say Al Gore's demeanor defined his performance in the 2000 debates.

Diana West | October 03, 2004

George W. Bush's hometown weekly The Lone Star Iconoclast has endorsed John Kerry for president.

Paul Jacob | October 03, 2004

In Washington, D.C., Mayor Anthony A. Williams announced his plans to build a 41,000-seat, city-financed baseball stadium at a price tag of $440 million to entice the Montreal Expos to make the nation's capitol their home. And the people cheer.

George Will | October 03, 2004

Michael Barone, author of The Almanac of American Politics, says Ohio, the 17th state, is 'an epitome of American normalcy.'
