Paul Jacob | November 14, 2004

There's nothing wrong with questioning the standards that are set for any endeavor, for any area of human activity whatsoever ? especially when it concerns our kids. Rules can, do and must change to meet changing circumstances. Of course.

Bruce Bartlett | November 14, 2004

In his post-election press conference, President Bush laid out an extremely ambitious second-term agenda.

Brent Bozell | November 13, 2004

For those who do like their heroes a little less super-serious than the superhuman characters of old, there is a surprisingly mature option: Pixar's new cartoon 'The Incredibles.'

Doug Giles | November 13, 2004

Millions of working-hard and playing-hard Americans took a day off Thursday to properly give major props to the 25 million vets who died defending this grand land.

Caroline Glick | November 13, 2004

Suha Arafat's rant against leaders of the Palestinian Authority and Yasser Arafat's heirs apparent earlier in the week was revealing in many ways.

Robert Novak | November 13, 2004

The Senate Republican leadership is considering a two-year waiver to delay Sen. Orrin Hatch's removal as Judiciary Committee chairman because of term limits, thereby forestalling Sen. Arlen Specter's succession to the post.

Kathleen Parker | November 13, 2004

Through their post-election soul-searching, Democratic leaders claim to have seen the light. The reason they lost - and the way to win - is God.

Jonah Goldberg | November 12, 2004

There's good news and bad news. The bad news is that Attorney General John Ashcroft has resigned.

David Limbaugh | November 12, 2004

Maybe liberals have declared a temporary cease-fire in their attacks against the Iraq war during our assault on Fallujah, or maybe the internals of the exit polls are unnerving them, but they're on the warpath on the 'morals' issue.

Mona Charen | November 12, 2004

Instant election analysis is like instant breakfast -- frothy and lacking in substance. Remember the angry white males of 1994?

Cal Thomas | November 12, 2004

The legacy of Yasser Arafat, for those not brainwashed by his propaganda and that of his supporters, is one of murder, deceit and corruption.

Rebecca Hagelin | November 12, 2004

Although I prefer to describe books in my own words, I found the words on the inside cover of the book to be superior to any description of this important work than I could draft:

Jacob Sullum | November 12, 2004

Although economists have torn such claims to shreds, politicians still reach for them in an attempt to cover their naked baseball envy with something resembling the public interest.

Rich Tucker | November 12, 2004

What you see often depends on where you are -- as you move around an object, your view of it changes.

George Will | November 12, 2004

Success in Iraq, people here believe, is contingent on three ifs:

Charles Krauthammer | November 12, 2004

Overnight, the revolution of the Angry White Male became conventional wisdom.

Thu, Nov 11, 2004

Ann Coulter | November 11, 2004

The only scandal is that a purported news program would raise insinuations of vote fraud based on the party registration of Southern Democrats living in the Florida Panhandle.

Thomas Sowell | November 11, 2004

Now that he is in line to become chairman of that committee in January, because of seniority, the meaning of these two elusive -- and elastic -- terms becomes crucial.

Michelle Malkin | November 11, 2004

Here are a few mainstream media rules of thumb: Minority Democrats in public office are inspirational role models. Minority Republicans in public office are embarrassing sellouts.

Larry Elder | November 11, 2004

They still don't get it. Americans support strong national defense, lower taxes, less government, believe in faith and family as traditionally defined, and support restrictions on abortion.

Suzanne Fields | November 11, 2004

If you want to see a photograph of John Kerry, you're more likely to find one on a milk carton than in your daily newspaper.

Terry Jeffrey | November 11, 2004

Unfortunately, statesmen such as John Ashcroft are rare.

Ben Shapiro | November 11, 2004

The only downside to Arafat's death is that it comes from natural causes. No terrorist of Arafat's magnitude, with so much blood on his hands, should be allowed to fade away in a French hospital bed.

Emmett Tyrrell | November 11, 2004

One of the reasons I can say with the utmost confidence that the liberal Democrats are going to be out in the cold for a very long time has to do with a sociological observation.

Joel Mowbray | November 11, 2004

Though identifying what put a candidate in a close contest ?over the top? is sort of like crediting the final basket scored with winning the basketball game, it appears that a ballot initiative, known as Issue 1, banning gay marriage provided Bush with the winning margin in Ohio?and thus, the electoral college.

Alan Reynolds | November 11, 2004

In those desperate last days before the election, liberal advocacy groups even managed to sneak political propaganda into routine business news, of all places.

Ross Mackenzie | November 11, 2004

What, precisely, did the Kerry campaign miss? How did it fall down? Seemingly so destined to win, where did it fail?

John McCaslin | November 11, 2004

Most recognize him as Cliff Clavin, the mailman on 'Cheers,' but Hollywood actor and director John Ratzenberger is keeping busy these days actually plugging America.

Robert Novak | November 11, 2004

The untold story from last week's Republican victory was the ineffectiveness of the left's attacks on right-wing reform.

Marvin Olasky | November 11, 2004

Question on the LAT (Leadership Aptitude Test): Hey, conservative Christian, you've just helped to re-elect a president and strengthen the GOP in Congress. What are you doing next?

Larry Kudlow | November 11, 2004

As the whole world expected, the Federal Reserve continued its policy of normalizing short-term rates by raising its policy target to 2 percent this week.

Wed, Nov 10, 2004

Thomas Sowell | November 10, 2004

The illness of Chief Justice William Rehnquist and the brazen announcement by Senator Arlen Specter of his own policy litmus test for judicial nominees raise very serious questions about which way this country will go at this crossroads in our legal history.

Walter E. Williams | November 10, 2004

Recent elections pointed to deepening divisions among American people, but has anyone given serious thought to just why? I have part of the answer, which starts off with a simple example.

Brent Bozell | November 10, 2004

Anyone who is a political junkie -- if you stayed up into the wee hours of Election Night, you qualify -- had a couple of beefs with the national media amidst an otherwise riveting evening.

Jonah Goldberg | November 10, 2004

The other day I wrote a column offering some suggestions to the Democrats about how they could improve their plight.

Tony Blankley | November 10, 2004

I assume the Republican National Committee is busy recording and archiving the idiotic statements coming out of national Democratic Party leaders and commentators.

Cal Thomas | November 10, 2004

The 'values voters' supposedly made the difference in the re-election of George W. Bush and now want to see the administration deliver on their agenda.

Debra J. Saunders | November 10, 2004

In 2000, 61 percent of California voters approved Proposition 22, also dubbed the Defense of Marriage Act, which declared, 'Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.'

Linda Chavez | November 10, 2004

For more than three decades, supporters of affirmative action have argued that racial preferences in higher education were absolutely vital if blacks and other minorities were to obtain college and professional degrees.

Larry Kudlow | November 10, 2004

With Hubbard, Laffer, and Snow in the mix, Bush?s ambitious second-term economic agenda will have a much greater chance of success than most inside-the-Beltway pundits believe possible.

Tue, Nov 09, 2004

Thomas Sowell | November 09, 2004

President Bush had barely finished celebrating his election victory when Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania fired a shot across his bow.

Star Parker | November 09, 2004

Getting blacks to vote Republican is no small accomplishment. Yet they did so in sufficient numbers to play an important role in re-electing George Bush.

Mike Adams | November 09, 2004

I was recently informed about a possible case of religious discrimination against a (now former) cheerleading coach at the University of Georgia (UGA).

David Limbaugh | November 09, 2004

Many liberals are beside themselves. Things were bearable when they could delude themselves into blaming their loss of power on a 'stolen' election.

Dennis Prager | November 09, 2004

As one who was raised a Democrat and became a Republican only 10 years ago, I would like to answer Gov. Napolitano's question as honestly as she posed it.

Matt Towery | November 09, 2004

As a native Southerner, I know the stereotypes. One is that someone like me should always be a gentleman. Another is that I'm probably not all that cotton-picking bright.

Rich Tucker | November 09, 2004

If Billy Joel is correct and only the good die young, then we may yet have a few more years of Yasser Arafat. He?s only 75 years old, after all.

Armstrong Williams | November 09, 2004

September 11 impacted not only our decadent belief that our way of life was self-perpetuating and secure, but it also crystallized differences in what we want from our leaders.

John McCaslin | November 09, 2004

It's been exactly one week since Election Day, and Americans who can't stomach four more years of President Bush are drawing blueprints for Canada - or Ireland, perhaps.

Bruce Bartlett | November 09, 2004

Last week, President Bush said that he would start thinking about Cabinet and staff changes over the weekend. The decisions he makes in this area will be our first real indication of what his second term will be like.

George Will | November 09, 2004

In 2000, Americans were reminded that electoral votes select presidents. In 2004, Democrats were reminded that Bruce Springsteen does not.

Mon, Nov 08, 2004

Michael Barone | November 08, 2004

On election night, most observers were focusing on central cities to see how many votes the Democrats would roll up.

Mike Adams | November 08, 2004

Someday, our universities will learn that the public does not want to fund 'sexuality' and 'gender' studies and 'queer film festivals.' Until then, it promises to be a long semester. Hang in there.

Cal Thomas | November 08, 2004

Reaction by the losing side in last week's presidential election would be startling if it weren't predictable.

Diana West | November 08, 2004

There is something close to poetic justice in the creaky monolith of Old Media showing its advanced age and crotchety bias in a campaign that now ends in the defeat of John Kerry.

Phyllis Schlafly | November 08, 2004

U.S. Supreme Court justices are beginning to manifest a curious fascination with foreign legal systems, too.

John Leo | November 08, 2004

On the morning after the election, newspeople at cable outlets and National Public Radio launched a one-day seminar to educate themselves on the "new" and "surprising" finding that millions of Americans had actually voted on social issues.

Jack Kemp | November 08, 2004

During the presidential election, President Bush and many Republican congressional and senatorial candidates campaigned on reforming Social Security by creating personal retirement accounts that workers own and control.

Robert Novak | November 08, 2004

Sen. Arlen Specter, the canny old fox of Pennsylvania politics, got carried away last Wednesday in the flush of an easy fifth-term victory and revealed too much of what he really thinks

Chuck Colson | November 08, 2004

In interviews since the election, I?ve been asked repeatedly: Why did so many evangelicals and conservative Catholics vote for Bush? And what do we expect in return?

Sun, Nov 07, 2004

Paul Jacob | November 07, 2004

The media kept telling us that support for term limits was waning. But apparently voters didn't get the memo.
